REOPENING PARTY WITH 5 CARD STUDS / RADIO RADIO
Tuesday, September 21 at 7 p.m
5 CARD STUDS
The 5 Card Studs is a group of veteran players whose diverse backgrounds combine to bring subtlety and precision to top-40, AM Gold hits and your forgotten favorites. Their love and respect for music’s artistic anomalies comes through in their deftly-executed renditions of songs by performers you might not remember but whose tunes you will. They reach back to the early years of rock and roll and hit all the notes coming forward: ’60s pop and soul, ’70s rock, funk and disco, as well as yacht-rock favorites.
The Studs pride themselves on their attention to detail with guitar sounds meticulously worked out, string and horn parts not ignored, and vocals—well, you need to see it to believe it! There’s a reason The 5 Card Studs open for legends when they come through town.
Great, danceable music with a punchy rock-and-roll edge—that's New Wave. That's Radio Radio. You’ll see and hear a band of top musicians playing songs no other band is covering—artists like The Clash, English Beat/General Public, Duran Duran, New Order, Elvis Costello & the Attractions, Psychedelic Furs, INXS, The Cure, Devo, Talking Heads Gen X and many more—played in a way that makes you feel like you’re experiencing the ‘real thing’ live for the very first time.
Radio Radio draws an amazingly wide range of fans; from twenty-somethings discovering New Wave for the first time (thanks to video games, commercials and movies) to forty- and fifty-somethings with well-loved cassette collections filled with these bands they remember and adore.
