Soundtrack Serenade, a rotating group of local musicians that revels in performing rock songs from famous flicks, will crank up the volume to 11 as it takes on Rob Reiner’s faux documentary This Is Spinal Tap at Martyrs’ Pub this Thursday, May 29th. Past Soundtrack Serenade shows have covered Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Dazed And Confused, and Empire Records. The musicians involved this time out are guitarist-vocalist Neal Alger, bassist-vocalist Charlie Short, guitarist-vocalist Ethan Semone, and keboards player-vocalist Dan Ingenthron.
Several brave souls will be required to man the drum kit, due to the Spinal Tap curse of drummers suffering spontaneous combustion. They are Ted Sirota, Dan Leali, Makaya McCraven, Tom Hipskind, Kevin O’Donnell, Gerald Dowd, Larry Beers, John Maloney, Timothy Remis, Steve Chesney, Barry Bennett, and John Aselin. In addition to Soundtrack Serenade playing songs like “Rock And Roll Creation” and “Cups And Cakes,” there will Spinal Tap trivia and a raffle for prizes. The event s a benefit for Box Of Stars, a non-profit organization that utilizes music to promote mental health awareness. The fun begins at 8:30 PM, admission is $10.
