Francesca & Tom Plutshack
Local, original music in Riverwest is exactly what you will get on this special evening featuring alternating sets between the Jamaican roots-inspired sounds of The Tritonics and the clever, contagious, captivating songs of songwriter Francesca and her six string king sidekick (and Tritonic alumnus), Tom Plutshack. A school night / work night – friendly start time of 7:00pm makes it an easy decision. Six bucks. Join us!
The Tritonics are Jeff Stehr, Dave Bolyard, Glenn Asch, Kyle Seifert, Mike Lizzo and Peter Roller. They write, arrange and perform original music written in the Jamaican roots styles of rock steady, ska and reggae. They also cover crucial standards of those genres by artists like Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, Toots and the Maytalls, The Heptones, Johnny Clarke, The Valentines and The Jamaicans. In addition, The Tritonics apply a unique process they’ve dubbed “doowopification” to rock n roll classics by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and many others. Doowopification reinterprets and revitalizes (Ital-izes!) classic rock standards, anointing them in the name of Jah with stripped down, Jamaican roots-style arrangements, one drop-centered rhythm and harmony-heavy vocals.
Francesca & Tom Plutshack are a Milwaukee acoustic duo.
Show at 7pm, doors open at 6:30pm.
