12/22/07 - 9th Wave,
SPF-4 and more in CT
Big Love to the following folks for making last night's show at the Zen Bar
THE best Holiday Party of the year:
SPF-4 - The band gets better every time I see them, playing fast and
furious for over 50 minutes. The opened the show in fine fashion and raised the
bar for the rest of the night. Plus...they are as generous with their equipment
as they are with their music. A great band on any night, but especially last
Slick Fitty - Easily my new favorite band, and not just because of the music,
which is solid and hot, much like the band members. These nice guys are lots of
fun and they had everyone in the room smiling, bopping and grooving to the
rockabilly beat. I will be seeing them again at Rudy's in New Haven on Jan. 26.
You should be there too.
9th Wave - Ahh, my heart be still, but my feet keep moving. How can anyone stand
still when 9th Wave breaks out and smokes the club with their hot rod surf
signature sound? Creepsters From the Deep, Short Board Action, Big Black
Cadillac and so many more. Their new CD is finally available. Get one before
they're sold out. It's be the highlight of 2008!
Jason James and the Baystate Houserockers - It was with a great deal of pleasure
and honor that I got the privilege of introducing Jason James last night. His
style is classic, with just the right amount of brash rough wailing guitar
to make the audience wail along with him. The band had a set list but added to
it absolutely everything was requested by the audience. Jason promised that he'd
be back in the Springtime. I hope I can wait that long.....
Finally, I would also like to thank Rockabilly Willy from WESU for opening the
night with me and Michelle "Go Kat Go" Terranova from WNHU for introducing Slick
Fitty. Big thanks to Perilous Cheryl, Joey Zone, Wendy Gamenight, Bobby D,
Rattlesnake Ralph, Ray and The Murdercycles crew, Dan-o Clam, John and The
Zen Bar staff, The Malibu Girls, everyone who came out last
night and my family and friends for putting up with such craziness from
We packed the Zen Bar last night and we'll be doing it again on February
9, 2008. Get ready for a very special Valentines show...Beach Blanket Bingo
Bonanza! I'm looking for a few sweetheart bands to bring Frankie and Annette
back to life. Reach out and let me know if you're interested. As always, time is
of the essence.
Aloha and Happy New Year,
This has been a Blue StingRaye Production.....
