Upcoming Shows! Lots Of Them!!!

Some of you have been asking when I will be getting back to booking shows like the 60s Rock & Roll Reunions. After the successful Double Door Inn anniversary show, I’ve decided to give them another round. Charlotte’s own Mannish Boys will lead the local charge back to the garage, with shows at Smokey Joe’s on February 16th, April 27th and July 6th. Jake Berger, Rob Thorne, Greg James and JC Matlak will bring all of your fave garage rock, psych and R&B. And Charlotte’s own Sidewalk Bob and Mitchell Kearney will be opening the Feb. 16th show. Show begins at 10pm, and tickets are five dollars. 

But wait, there’s more! The Mannish Boys will be playing the Evening Muse on Sunday, March 18th for a special live recording event. Showtime is 7pm for this show. Get there early, get loud and make some noise, and you’ll hear yourself (and the band) on record, some (hopefully soon) groovy day. And yes, a certain photographer/show promoter/tambourine player will also be lurking about. Come by, say hello, and ask me if I’ve made any more progress on my next books. 

More on these, and more shows coming soon. Spread the word, and see you at the Rock Show.

Hearts & Bands Benefit, Tipsy Burro, September 16th, 2017

On September 16th, the Tipsy Burro will feature a benefit for the Matthews Free Medical Clinic. The clinic is an all volunteer clinic that makes healthcare available to those that cannot supply it for themselves, for a variety of reasons. The Clinic is an organization of doctors, techs and staff volunteer because, in the words of one of their staff members, "It gives us a chance to do something good in the world."

This awesome event, entitled Hearts & Bands, features the top shelf of musical entertainment from Charlotte's top musicians. The Mike Strauss Band, Randy Franklin & the Sardines, the Mannish Boys, The Funky Geezer, Temperence League, and the Loose Lugnuts. There will also be food and beverage specials, and no cover charge, although donations are greatly appreciated. The Tipsy Burro will open at 3pm, with the music starting at 4pm. Special thanks to the Tipsy Burro, the Thirsty Beaver, Randy Franklin, and all of the musicians for their help in making this benefit a reality. 

See you on September 16th at the Tipsy Burro, for the Hearts & Bands benefit for the Matthews Free Medical Clinic.
