Classic Bang - Alternative/Indie Rock
Friday, June 29th
Classic Bang is two dudes who play alternative/indie rock with a sound as fulfilling as a hungryman's breakfast. They are fiercely devoted to melody, expressed in rich harmonies that unfold in their music. Their aura is reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel, but with added crunch and raw intensity. Jake lays down jazzy guitarwork over moody contemplations, while Matt blends deep vocals with upbeat basslines. Their Two Robes EP was released in the fall and is available on Spotify and Apple Music.

Band members Hazel Zetee (86 yrs old!) vocals, guitar; Janet Glossic, vocals, fiddle and mandolin; C.J. Brown, vocals, banjo-ukulele; Walt Wilson, bass; Howie Clark, vocals, banjo, dobro will be playing a rather eclectic mix of Country, Old-Time, Bluegrass and Gospel music. They have been a band since about 8 or 10 years ago when someone asked them to play at a Purdue event.
