Krannert Uncorked with The B-Sides

Local father/son musical duo Jake and Jackson (Tatar) expand their repertoire of 70s/80s favorites to a full band format by adding Josh Houchin and Larry Lister (local members of the nationally-touring The Boat Drunks) and Ray Wiggs (from former C-U '70s supergroup Appaloosa) to form The B-Sides!  Call it whatever you want—Yacht Rock? OK! Folk Rock—sure!.  The B-Sides play a fun mix of recognizable '70s and '80s classics and a few beyond—but all with a piano-forward nod towards vocal harmonies and fun songs from the modern American songbook that will have you singing along in your head (if not out loud!)  If you came up listening to The Midnight Special, SiriusXM's 'The Bridge', or anything in between, this group will resonate.  Covers include music by The Eagles, Steely Dan, Jackson Browne, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Hall and Oates, and The Beatles, as well as a few originals from the Jake's long-standing stint with the The Boat Drunks, which you may have heard on SiriusXM 'Radio Margaritaville'. For those FM-listeners, you will catch a few 'B-Side' songs as well!
