Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse With A Pair Of Interesting Shows

(DUNELLEN, NJ) -- Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse will host a pair of interesting shows on June 10th and 11th.  On Friday, the club hosts Cheers Elephant with Great White Caps.   And on Saturday, the club presents Hub Kings with the Hot Club of the D&R with Anthony Daniels.  Both shows start at 9pm with $10 admission.

Bruce Warren, WXPN Philadelphia says this about Cheers Elephant, "Their indie-psychedelia is a twisted yet innocent, intricate yet trouble-free collection of fantasia. It's like they sift Jefferson Airplane and Village Green-era Kinks with 13th Floor Elevators and occasionally they'll drop some seriously cacophonous prog-like shit into the mix that makes me think they either have no idea how to play together or they’re actually geniuses."

Born in retro basement bars, to the sounds of spinning vinyl, the Hub Kings conjure a setting where high ball glasses tip to head bopping funk and bossa beats. Their jazz influenced vibe, swings from the classic style of Booker T. & The MG's to more contemporary artists like Medeski, Martin, & Wood. The band is centered on the smoky tones of the Hammond organ, whose swanky sound dominated urban centers like New Brunswick and Newark in the 60's and 70's.

Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse is located at 745 Bound Brook Road in Dunellen.  For reservations, call 732-529-4464.  For more information visit http://www.roxyanddukes.com
