Rock Series At Coconut Club
Over the next several months there is a series of rock shows that are being taped for television broadcast. The series is being produced by Michael Krikorian and is called Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday: The Unknown Heroes Of Rock. This past Wednesday evening late '70's band Starz gave a first rate performance as part of the series. They were both engaging onstage and provided a quality evening of their best material including their chart success "Cherry Baby." In short, these guys ROCKED and I'm glad to have caught their show. This series presents a unique opportunity to see and hear some groundbreaking acts performing in a rare intimate atmosphere. Krikorian should be commended for developing and bringing the series to the Coconut Club. It's a great opportunity for true music fans to experience artists showcasing their material in something other than the environment of a lounge nostalgia show. Next up is the Five Man Electrical Band on Sunday the 8th of January, they are best known for their hit single "Signs." Krikorian told me that four members of the now 7 person band are original members. It is a requirement of the series that the majority of the band's line-ups are original members. It should be another good night of music that Fresno music lovers will be fortunate to experience. Admission is free but reservations are required and can be made by calling 237-8155.
