The Listening Bar November 2014

2nd- SAVANNAH SKY
Dix Hills Performing Arts Center

This eclectic seven-piece combo presents A Tribute to the Grand Ole Opry featuring a program of rockabilly and western swing music.

7th TODD WOLFE BAND
Bobbique, Patchogue
Make a point of catching this tasty power trio who are known for playing Texas blues mixed with trippy psychedelia culminating in a style best described as “bluesadelic.”

22nd MISS IDA BLUE
Treme, Islip
There’s big fun to be had with this saucy chanteuse performing her repertoire of turn-of-the-century whorehouse blues, gospel and soul music. Close your eyes and you just might think you’re hanging out in a saloon down in New Orleans.

Liner Notes: Nina K. Gordan (lead vocalist, Savannah Sky)
Long Island Pulse: What artists inspired you to play rockabilly and western swing?
Nina K. Gordon: My main inspiration has always been the true classic country music of Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens and Loretta Lynn. Their music from that golden era is timeless.
