The Stupid Band hits Montrose’s Turn of the Century Saloon stage this Monday, April 23, for their 24th annual performance to celebrate all things Planet Earth. Admission is $10, plus a non-perishable food item. Showtime is 8:30 p.m.
Bandmembers include longtime Montrose residents Chris Tarman on bass, Michael Erie and Tony Kovacic on guitar, Brad Switzer on drums and vocals, and singer/percussionist Byron Hill.
Stupid Band has been performing since 1987, not long after the friends got together to form a Montrose garage band, playing high-energy covers and original music, from reggae to rock and roll, including music by the Beatles, Delbert McClinton, John Hyatt and PeterHimmelman.
This Earth Day you might hear their popular cover of “Watchtower,” or Stupid Band originals “Stupid Mistake,” “Who’s Beatin’ Who,” “JailBreak,” or the more recent “I Wanna Manana” and “Beneath the Peaks.” Whatever their song list, be ready to dance, because that’s what Stupid Band is best known for.
Turn of the Century is located at 117 NW Fourth Street in Montrose. Call 970/249-8250 for more information.
