The Vallures followed by New Orleans’ Stoop Kids
July 8, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$8
Two Great Bands, One low cover. 4 hours of hip shakin tunes.
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.
Stoop Kids’ sound is an eclectic mix of soul, hip-hop, surf, jazz, and rock with a psychedelic aftertaste. This, combined with their high-energy, theatrical, performances, makes Stoop Kids unique and unpredictable. While based in New Orleans, the band has toured extensively throughout the eastern United States over the past two years and plan to expand upon that. Their sophomore album, Already Out of Time, was described as “a genre-bending masterpiece” and “an essential album of 2015”.
The group is fronted by Griffin Dean singing, rapping, dancing, playing guitar, and writing the majority of the music. He is backed by Thomas Eisenhood (Baritone Saxophone, Harmonies), Sam Fruend (Bass, Harmonies), David Paternostro (Keys, Guitar), and Joe Tontillo (Drums). The five-piece band has independently released two albums and self-booked over 200 shows over the three years since their inception.
