50 Watt Whale
Itâs difficult to cook up a good band name [music, July 18: âWhatâs in a Name?â], but that hurdle is far behind local pop-rock trio 50 Watt Whale.
With a style that resembles Pink Floyd learning not to take themselves so seriously and incorporating elements of acts like The Band, theyâve been performing in one way or another since 1985. And though the three core members make up the heart and soul of the Whale (did somebody say nickname?), itâs not uncommon to see special guests dropping in to lend support for the tremendous triumvirate.
50 Watt Whale probably wonât change the face of music as we know it, but all those who attend can look forward to a great night of catchy rock ânâ roll numbers and some serious booty-shakingâŚand honestly, who doesnât love booty shaking?
