If you have ever passed the corner of Atlantic and Third Avenues in Brooklyn, you’ve noticed the bar with the flames painted on the side of the building. That place is Hank’s Saloon, and they are hosting a wonderful musical triple header tonight.
Bucky Hayes and his band will take the stage there at 9pm. You name it, Bucky can do it, and if you name a local musician, it’s likely that Bucky has played with him or her. Bucky’s stock in trade is Americana with a dash of soul thrown into the mix. Bucky’s a very good songwriter and an engaging performer.
Next up, at 10pm, will be Andi Rae and The Back River Bullies. Andi Rae and the band play their original Americana and folk rock with verve and energy. This is the release show for the band’s brand new CD, If You Want to Be My Man, so I’m sure they’ll be running on all cylinders tonight.
Then at 11:30pm, Bryan Dunn will play a set with his band The Humdrums. The Humdrums play early rock and roll. You’ll hear songs from 1960 and before, some well known and some more obscure. A Humdrums show is always great fun. The band, harkening back to Danny and the Juniors, notes that rock n roll will never die as long as they are around to play it live.
