The Vallures with Soul Medicine

08:00 pm to 11:59 pm
The Player's Pub
http://www.theplayerspub.com

The Vallures are the sounds of summer in the 60’s at a GO-GO; dancin’, shakin’, groovin’, movin’ it, bringing you sweet soul music with a twist and a shout! Old hits, rarities, and originals with a nod to sixties girl groups make you wanna Boogaloo, Shingling, and just let it all hang out. Opening the show will be Soul Medicine. Five inventive, passionate talents deliver a vital dose of body-rockin’, soulful, jazz- infused, earthy rhythm and blues. Their originals soar with standout hooks and lyrical truth that “hurts so good”, and their covers are injections of deep familiar grooves that make it so easy for this delicious mix of medicine to go down. https://www.facebook.com/Soul-Medicine-307972039401262/ https://soulmedicine.bandcamp.com/releases
