Beaker Brothers Band • 6:30 pm
Before there was alternative … there was the only alternative. The one place to find out where music was headed. Before XM schlock and FM rock, there was the Mighty 1090, churning out progressive rock way after bedtime. Clyde Clifford's Beaker Street on KAAY from Little Rock, Arkansas was the beacon pointing the way for our music, and we were listening.
For over 15 years the Beaker Brothers Band has been paying homage to the original Jam Bands of the late 60’s and early 70’s – the Allman Brothers, Clapton, Santana, Little Feat, Rolling Stones, James Gang, the Doors, Steely Dan, Neil Young, CCR, and many more. But the Beaker Brothers Band isn’t a nostalgia act. We’re playing music that has been in our heads and our hearts since we first heard it. This is the music we played in our youth. It's music of the night from Back in the Day, played by guys who are as awed by it now as when we were driving home from a gig in 1969 and suddenly pulled off the road on a hilltop 'cause Clyde was blowing our minds again, and we couldn't get the signal down in the valley.
This is not your father's rock band. No, wait, maybe it is. Anyway, we're sure you're gonna dig it. So, join the Beaker Brothers Band for a joyride from the Summers of Love — it'll be really groovy.
Peace. Love. Rock & Roll.
