Saturday, 10 p.m., free
INSPIRED by classic rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Movers & Shakers “love anything with a beat and a groove,” bassist Mike Peaden says.
Two years in the works, their self-titled album LP blends elements of funk, disco, and rock ‘n’ roll. Recorded at several locations over the years and produced by guitarist Chandler Woods, Movers & Shakers weaves tight rhythms with acoustic guitar and classic electric guitar riffs to get crowds on the floor and dancing.
Saturday’s a big day for the local boys—not only are they celebrating their first record’s release, but they’ll also be one of the bands keeping Rock ‘n’ Roll marathoners pumped on their way to the finish line. As a bonus, there will be drink specials at the Ampersand shows for any runners who participated in the marathon.
