WMFO’s DJ Easy Ed Presents a Roots Music Blowout!

and Cranky Frankie Blandino on Steel

Leah and Her J-Walkers

+ Easy Ed’s Record Hop

Roots music fans—and Cranktones and Spurs fans in particular--the Midway’s the place to be on August 17 for a night of rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll, and hillbilly bop starring 

--Your old pal Roy Sludge (with Jim Haggerty on bass and Judd Williams on drums). The boys will be digging deep into their vast musical archives for rare gems they usually don’t perform live.

--Providence’s Barley Hoppers, featuring Stan “the Man” Kozlowski on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Ray Reniere on lead guitar, and Mike Volatile on bass. Joining them, for one night only, inimitable steel guitar whiz Frankie Blandino.

--Leah and Her J-Walkers—a red-hot trio with Leah Gaudette on lead vocals, Jim Gaudette on lead guitar, and Johnny Carlevale on bass

WMFO’s DJ Easy Ed spins the platters early, late, and on the breaks!

Don’t miss this rare night of roots music greatness. Each and every one of these performers is a master of their craft. And, as you may have noticed, the stars have aligned perfectly: We’ll have two thirds of the Cranktones and half of the Spurs in the room. Musical magic is guaranteed.
