Anticipated song list includes hits by Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, White Lion, King Crimson, Black Sabbath, Simply Red, Sawyer Brown, Pink Floyd and Green Day, plus a bonus original song written by the band’s newest member, 18-year-old rhythm guitarist and Silverchair fanatic Skippy Jenson.

Music starts at 9 p.m. Cover charge is un-established, but will be non-negotiable, per Funky’s owner Greg “Funky” Gregory.
Other tour dates include a few shows at other dives around the area.
Local Cover Band is Bass Lake’s most-enduring rock ‘n’ roll unit, launched in 1973 during a weekend of boredom and weed-induced dreams of supplanting The Who in terms of world-domination. All founding members are either dead, don’t live around here anymore or are descendants/friends of the original lineup.
