Classic Juke-joint Appeal w/Toy Soldiers at KFN Feb. 15

Classic Juke-joint Appeal w/Toy Soldiers at KFN Feb. 15

Blues may be the tie that binds all three acts on the slate tonight at Kung Fu Necktie. Headlined by Toy Soldiers, while we await the spring release of their sophomore record The Maybe Boys, which is produced by Bill Moriarty, the group is guaranteed to bring their patented combination of steady-rolling, train-churning, funky blues and soul. Whether it’s Ron Gallo’s “no holding back vocals,” the unrelenting boogie-down groove perpetuated by the threefold marriage of bass, keys and percussion, the simple thick country-blues guitar riffs, or the sweet moans of the blues harp, this group has that classic juke-joint appeal. Their sound will celebrate the joy of the oncoming weekend of freedom. Toy Soldiers will be joined by North Carolina duo Goodnight, Texas, who also dabbles in the folk/blues milieu. August John Lutz II from Levee Drivers will be making a solo appearance playing gritty, hard-driving blues to round out The Swollen Fox-presented bill. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., $12, 7:30, 21+ - Michael Colavita
