BG Winterfest ready to rock
Music venues will keep the Winterfest rocking on Saturday night.
Grounds for Thought will host Bob Manley with the drummer Bob Rex band. The group plays regular Sunday night sessions at the Village Idiot in Maumee.
Manley explained recently that the band has been working with a couple younger keyboard players. Kyle Turner will be bringing in his Hammond B3 and Leslie amp. The sound veers toward a funkier, greasier style of jazz, Manley, who plays saxophone and flute.
Also, having Turner on organ frees John Johnson up to switch from bass to guitar, his main instrument, Manley said.
At Howard's Club H, the all-female punk band Kitty Glitter will headline a show. Featured acts will be Mechanical Cat and Fragile X.
At Stone's Throw, Acoustic Penguin, featuring teen fiddle prodigy Grant Flick, will play its distinctive mix of bluegrass and swing.
