Sideways Sharks - it's what you get when you blend players from Sideways Portal and the Tone Sharks. But that would be an oversimplification. There are other groups as will: Oomph, 'Extet, Zygoat, Freezer Burn, The Blowholes, and more.
This is going to be pretty neat. More than a few bands within this group...Dave Storrs tunes like Ross Island, Cub Scout Barbecue, and Clouds will be featured...Dave Leslie's tunes (which are nameless as of this writing but sure to delight)...Page Hundemer's tunes Turkey Bound, Katie's Blues, Now He's Gone...John Bliss' tune Reinhardt in Tunisia...Mike Curtis' tunes (again, the titles may be unknown to me, but are sure to please)...Jack Falk (whom I've never played with but excited to) will bring his energy and raps into the mix....and my own little offerings (Rob Birdwell) of tunes with titles like Birthday Suit, That Is Not a Chew Toy, and Rodent Rumbleway....all of these and more will be on our stands...we'll see if we even get to any of these...between our grooves, spontaneous creations, and the various percussion interludes...there may even be special guests...who can know for sure? You'll just have to check it out.
Enjoy the Sideways Sharks!
