Killer Filler/Good Rocking Sam – Twofer Night!
November 7, 2015 · 8pm/$8
The official Instro Summit “Host Band,” Hillsborough, NC’s Killer Filler plays a royal mix of 60’s inspired surf, soul, & lounge, fronted by goofball organist/guitarist Crispy Bess and Stoic guitar master Bryon Settle. Picture a three-way cross between the Ventures, Booker T & the MG’s and Henry Mancini playing a rowdy party, and you’ll know what they’re up to.
Good Rocking Sam
GRS is a blues/r & b/roots outfit out of Durham, NC, home of the Piedmont Blues. GRS is big into the blues, but doesn’t really call itself a blues band, we just take it all in and try to put something original back out…blues, Memphis soul, Motown, New Orleans, some old funk mixed up and served out to the world-wide internet. Here we are trolling the web, seeing if the long tail has room for a humble, yet sincere Triangle roots band.
GRS is Dave Sword (drums and vocals), Dave Mozier (keyboard, harp, vocals), Chuck Taylor (bass and vocals), and Mike Conway (guitar). We’ve all slugged it out in the clubs in tons of local bands, and have been crossing paths for years. GRS grew out of jams/songwriting sessions at Dave’s place in lovely Efland, NC, and these sessions continue every week. Once we get about a dozen tunes together, we haul out the gear, and bounce between home studios to put it all down.
