Friday Night Concert Series; The Recliners and The Beaker Brothers
August 16 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PMFree
Iowa City mainstays for more the past 24 years, the Recliners play a wide variety of music that is hard to classify. Perhaps a category labeled “contemporary Acoustic-Pop-Folk-Indie-Rock” would fit the bill. Their repertoire has something for almost everyone, from classic ‘60s and ‘70s rock to songs by contemporary singer-songwriters, from American folk to Irish melodies, bluegrass and Van Morrison to the edgy rock and ballads of Richard Thompson. Their goal is to play the most beautiful and/or interesting music and to make sure everyone enjoys the journey.
They cut their teeth on the music of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, the Allman Brothers, and the Grateful Dead, and they’re still gnawing on it. Now, they’re going back to where the jam bands came from, to the time when rock, blues, jazz, and Latin music met and grew into their inspiration.
