Halloween Bash V with Joe Bell & the Stinging Blades

October 31, 2014  ·  9pm /$8

Halloween Bash V! Look your worst (best) and win – Best Individual costume, and Best Couple or Group.
**9:00- midnight! PLEASE arrive after 8:30 (after the Dogs). We need time to clean up and get ready for you.

Conceived in cigarette smoke and nurtured on cold beer, the Stinging Blades are a bar band down to the marrow. Their mixture of Memphis Soul, New Orleans R&B, Blues, Rock & Roll, and finely honed original tunes all played with real feeling keeps a joint rocking. They never resort to the lowest common denominator in choice of tunes, but always try to lift the atmosphere to a higher plane while remaining anchored in carnal pelvic funk. This band jams! However, don’t think of them as a “jam band’. That’s not to say that they aren’t open to the ecstasies of psychedelic pandemonium. But when all is said and done, the pleasure found in a good groove well played is paramount for these fellows. If it’s feeling, quality tunes, and a healthy portion of Rock & Roll magic you desire, let the Blades cut off a slice for you.
