New Year's Eve! The Mother Hips with Billy Midnight, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers
9:00 PM Doors at 8:30 PM
The Mother Hips are a California band who play soulful West Coast inspired rock ‘n’ roll with a ceaseless fanbase and supporting cast of prestigious musicians. Tim Bluhm’s cathartic and multi-dimensional lyrics are cradled in his gritty elastic voice and strengthened with Greg Loiacono’s dynamic vocal range and ear for perfect, gold plated harmony.
Melding rock, blues, boogie, country, and embryonically tuned vocals into a metaphoric music blender, Billy Midnight will seize your imagination with their good-natured americana groove.
San Francisco vocalist Nicki Bluhm released her debut album “Toby’s Song” in Summer 2008. “Toby’s Song” earned rave reviews as “[An] amazing album. Nicki has tapped into the country-folk and blues side of rock music that came up in the West Coast in the 1960’s and 1970’s with Laurel Canyon artists like CSN&Y, Joni Mitchell and The Byrds” (Wiretap Online).
