Say cover band and people imagine a Rick Springfield look-a-like lead singer onstage with mediocre musicians who all regret the fact that they never made it. Pathetic.
Cover band Bad Sneakers breaks this stereotype to pieces. The band features three vocalists and anywhere from seven to ten (and sometimes more) musicians. And they are good. So good, in fact, they started as a Steely Dan cover band. (From a musicians standpoint, that rock band is arguably one of the most complicated to cover.) Now the group has added Tower Of Power the horn driven, soul powerhouse of funk to its repertoire.
Catch these pros perform at The Compound Grill. And feel free to make tonight a wonderful thing.
