Opening Solo Acts: Michael Barra, Grant Livingston and Valerie C. Wisecracker
FRANK’S MYTH SCI-FI BAND
The Barracudas are joined by Valerie C. Wisecracker and Grant Livingston to morph into what can only be described as a genre unto itself: country sci-fi as invented by William Frank Smith, who wrote all the songs. This “Spaced Out” storytelling band performs songs with tongue in cheek sci-fi, stand-alone lyrics, like back when there were rocket ships, ray guns, and robots. Titles like Bugman, Brussel Sprouts from Mars, When Roaches Get Brains, The Milky Way Bar, Electrical Man, and The Collector take you on an intergalactic tour of Frank Smith’s amazing mind.
MIKE BARRA AND THE BARRACUDAS It’s all-original countrybluesjazzrockfolk time with Mike Barra, a local singer songwriter who’s been performing in south Florida since the early seventies. Mike’s been writing songs for 48 years and playing guitar for 52. He’s lyrical and often satirical, typically captivating his audience and drawing their hearts into the world of his tunes. A roller-coaster ride of emotion guaranteed. Barra is honored to be joined by some amazing musicians that he calls a hot-rod rhythm section: John Holland, Sean Dibble, Alex Moreno, and sometimes Sean Edelson. DON’T MISS THIS DOUBLE HEADER SHOW
