MR.BOOGIE WOOGIE

Friday, July 21, 2017 | Doors 6pm | Music 7pm

Hard drivin’, old school Rhythm & Blues, complemented by some killer Boogie Woogies, by the fastest, flashiest, piano-thumping boogie man from the Netherlands. Yes, that’s right. This Dutch based, drive by piano player hits hard and will take no prisoners! As soon as he starts pounding the ivories, you’ll be on your way to the Land of Good Times.

”We can definitely say Mr. Boogie Woogie is not an acquired taste. His enthusiastic piano attacks are instantly accessible. He starts playing, you start smiling.” C. Graham - Tucson Citizen

Mr. Boogie Woogie (aka) Eric-Jan Overbeek was born on April 5, 1967 in Nieuw-Vennep, the Netherlands. Mesmerized by that old piano in the living room, Eric-Jan began studying classical piano at the age of eight. He demonstrated early an extraordinary talent for musical arrangement and got his first job at age twelve playing piano as an accompanist for dance classes. In April 2011 Overbeek was voted Best Dutch Blues Pianist 2010. A title he was nominated for again in 2013. He also won the prestigious title of Best European Blues Pianist 2005 in the company of the many of the world's best blues artists.


 

 

Byrd Dawg - The Ultimate Tribute
to The Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel

Friday August 18,2017 | Doors: 6pm | Show: 7pm
Friday August 18,2017 | Doors: 845pm | Show: 915pm

“All I Have To Do Is Dream”| “Wake Up Little Susie” | “Bye Bye Love” | “Cathy’s Clown” | “Bird Dog” | “Till I Kissed You” | “Let It Be Me” | “Walk Right Back” | “Crying In The Rain".

BYRD DAWG is the ultimate tribute to two iconic musical duos - The Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel - – starring Joel Dietrich and Wayne Rempel, and their seasoned four-piece group, The Vintage Electric Band.

Joel and Wayne both grew up listening to those amazing harmonies and lyrics painting vivid pictures. Playing together in bands for several years they discovered their mutual love for singing and harmonizing. They read about Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and many other artists saying Phil and Don Everly influenced them. The more Joel and Wayne played together, the greater their excitement and interest grew in developing a tribute to the influential Everly Brothers.
