Finn and the Sharks Salute to Chuck Berry
Sat, June 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20 advance / $25 at the door
Finn and the Sharks zero in on the incredible catalogue of the late Chuck Berry. A reviewer once said of Finn and the Sharks, “If you needed two words to describe this band’s music, it would be Chuck Berry.” This is as true today as it was all those years ago and makes them perfectly suited to the task. The band artfully traces the music that had a seminal impression on Mr. Berry, and the impact of Chuck Berry’s music on the early years of rock’n’roll through 60’s bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and beyond.
Finn & the Sharks are:
James Finnen (lead vocals, standup bass, guitar, tenor and baritone sax),
Billy Roues (lead guitar and vocals)
Steven “Muddy” Roues (double bass, acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals)
Ed “The Hammerhead” Steinberg (drums and vocals)
Longtime associate Kenny Margolis joins in on piano, reflecting Johnny Johnson’s timeless contribution to the Chuck Berry sound. There will be plenty of roots rockin’ music and no shortage of Finn and the Sharks originals. Special guests will be on hand to add the party atmosphere.
All the UpSouth Recordings releases of Finn and the Sharks albums will be available for purchase at the venue.
$20 advance / $25 at the door
Advance price available until 2pm the day of the performance. Doors open at 7pm.
