first weekend of the month features two of my favorite bands; first we
have Sarah Benck and the Robbers from Omaha. She is a demure looking 22
year old but when this gal straps on that guitar and steps up to the
microphone, look out. She writes great songs and the band is very tight
the 4th is Jeff Finlin and his band. Jeff is one of the best
songwriters you will ever hear. He has a new song in the latest Cameron
Crowe movie called Elizabethtown, check it out.
Bonepony returns Nov. 10th. They always pack the house so get there
early if you want a seat then I dare you to sit still for this
performance. Tramp has left the band and Kenny Wright replaces him.
Their latest CD is really doing well and may be their best yet. Come
pick up a copy and help these guys who just had their trailer and all
their equipment stolen.
of parties The Indulgers come to Oskar’s for the first time on the 11th
and a rockin’ good Irish time it will be, don’t miss this first rate
Irish band and wear your dancing shoes. Their new CD “Out In the West”
is being played all across the country.
17th we present another new band for Oskar’s Amy and the Continentals
www.amyandthecontinentals.com from Estes Park, Amy and Willie Panker
the drummer are from New Orleans so expect lots of good blues with a
Young and his band play Nov. 18th. They are very funky and it isn’t
often you get to see a classically trained violinist play it like a
guitar. They are sporting a new keyboard player that Lionel raves about.
day after Thanksgiving the 24th we showcase a young French harmonica
player named Nico Wayne Toussaint from Pau France,he doesn’t have much
original material but plays the old classic Chicago blues like he was
born there, he has a very powerful sound.
not least we have the energetic Peaches and the Groove doctors in the
house on the 25th. Peaches Embry is a great vocalist and can really
whale on the congas and sports a great band with Dave Davis and Wardell
