The Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy that is best described by the title of their first album: 1980's American Music.
A performance by today’s Blasters––vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman, bassist John Bazz, and guitarist Keith Wyatt––reflects influences that range from George Jones and Carl Perkins to Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown and Bo Diddley.
Blasters shows have been described as “a cross between Creedence and the Clash,” with a display of passion and energy only deepened by decades of experience. For all of the ways in which the world has changed in the past few decades, one thing is still guaranteed: the Blasters play American Music.
Petunia & the Vipers are from Canada, but play Americana music, combining blues, rockabilly, jazz and soul. The brilliant Petunia has dueted with Phil Alvin several times, and they share different arrangements of the song, "I'm Shaking."
Shannon's At The Top in Long Beach is the perfect place for a show of this caliber, with both seated and SRO space, full bar, menus and a dance floor.
Public parking nearby.
