And They Couldn’t Stop Jack From Being Classic

When the Classic Album Night series returns to the Music Joint at Reggies tomorrow night, it will have a definite English accent. Phil Angotti, joined by various other local musicians, will cover Happy Jack by The Who and Beggars Banquet by The Rolling Stones. Later, The Dirty Pigeons will be tackling Muswell Hillbillies by The Kinks.

Angotti and The Dirty Pigeons have also been part of the annual Halloweekend tribute events, so they’re well versed in this sort of thing. I’m not saying it’s Angotti’s fault, but I’ve had “Craise Finton Cook” stuck in my head since he covered The Bee Gees’ 1st album at Laurie’s Planet Of Sound as part of Record Store Day. In past tribute shows, he has honored The Zombies and The Monkees.

Bass player Charlie Short and drummer/Keith Moon fancier Brad Elvis (from The Handcuffs and The Romantics) will be joining Angotti for Happy Jack. For Beggars Banquet, he’ll be working with guitarist-vocalist John Meade, keyboards player Dan Ingenthron; and drummers John Blaha and Frank Corpus. Reggies is located at 2105 S. State Street. Admission is just $10 and the British Invasion begins at 9:00 PM.

Also at Reggies tomorrow night, Houndmouth, of “Sedona” fame, will be performing in the Rock Club.
