An Evening of Roots Music, Guitar Virtuosity and Stellar Musicianship
The Mosleys, Panalure and Kirk McFarlin
AT Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co. ON BRUCE STREET
Fans of well crafted Americana music, guitar virtuosity and great musicianship are in for a special treat as some of the most polished players and performers ever to come out of the Milwaukee area will share the stage on Friday, June 24. The evening will feature legendary roots rockers The Mosleys, the eclectic and electric Panalure, and Kirk McFarlin.
After a 15 year break, The Mosleys are once again firing on all cylinders with their brand of timeless, melodic, roots-inspired music. They have gained fans like Nick Lowe and attracted the attention of ABC News and are the rulers of the Riverwest music scene. Recently the Mosleys tore it up on the Anodyne stage at a sold-out show with the legendary Albert Lee.
Panalure will be debuting a new lineup with the addition of Reggie Bordeaux on drums and Bob Jennings on keys and sax from Paul Cebar’s Tomorrow Sound and Jason Klagstad on guitar who has played with Howie Epstein (Tom Petty), Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Arroyo, Semi-Twang and Bill Camplin. The band’s unique sound defies traditional categories with songs that will have you rocking one minute and floating through a surreal landscape the next.
Kicking off the show will be Kirk McFarlin who recently released a new self-titled CD – the first solo project for the drummer/multi-instrumentalist. McFarlin was a member of a pair of Milwaukee bands with recording contracts, Ecoteur and Carnival Strippers, and has recorded and toured with Victor DeLorenzo.
