J. GEILS BAND TRIBUTE With JUKE JOINT JIMMY & THE HOUSEPARTY ROCKERS
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, The J. Geils Band brought its brand of hard-partying blues rock to the masses with hits like "Centerfold," "Love Stinks," "Lookin For A Love," "Musta Got Lost," and "Freeze Frame."
Juke Joint Jimmy and The Houseparty Rockers engulfs the heart, soul and unsurpassed passion of Geils at it's very best. This New Jersey based group of stellar musicians masters Geils songs from early on in their career right up to the Geils Band demise in 1982 and without any doubt will impress both die-hard Geils fans and new fans as well. The talented musicianship is superb and there is always "Nothing But A Houseparty" rocking time emotional force to be reckoned with at every show. This is what rock n' roll blues should be and what it's all about in it's best form, it just doesn't get any better than this !!! The Band's on-stage musical talents and showmanship clearly illustrates the heart of rock n' roll blues in true form.
Juke Joint Jimmy and the House Party Rockers performs music from the entire catalog of the J. Geils Band's career. The "House Party" part of the name is a term the band uses to describe the atmosphere of Juke Joint Jimmy and the Houseparty Rockers shows and J. Geils Band's music. As with many tribute bands, when Juke Joint Jimmy and the House Party Rockers perform, the band members sound the part and dress the part. Juke and his band mates will wear attention-grabbing outfits to look the part as well to make the Show complete.
As my very kool mentor says: "We're no frills, no tricks, just hard, sweaty rock 'n roll and when we hit the stage it's Showtime baby !!!!" ; - ] ~~
