With the addition of Nashville Thursdays to the weekly lineup, the Club Room is firing on all cylinders. Things are sure to heat up on April 22 when they welcome David Graham & the Eskimo Brothers to the stage. 

This Nashville trio plays hillbilly music with a brashness of punk with influences ranging from Buck Owens to Social Distortion.

This free show will run from 7-10 p.m. and like every Nashville Thursday will feature Nashville Hot Chicken, Macho Cowboy Nachos, and Hubie’s Hootenanny Lemonade in addition to the normal menu. Make your reservations now at (260) 407-8530. 

Riverfront seeks Musical Acts

Calling all local bands and musicians: Riverfront Fort Wayne is looking for musical acts that perform in the following genres: jazz, blues, funk, Americana, soul/R&B, and alternative, to become part of the upcoming Muddy River Concert Series held at Promenade Park every other Wednesday night starting July 7. 

They plan to book two bands/performers for each concert night. If you’re interested, contact Jen Brown at by March 22. 

Stock up on Sound

The Fort Wayne Record & CD Show will return on Sunday, March 28, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Classic Café on Hillegas Road. You’ll find thousands of LPs, 45s, and CDs, plus music memorabilia and vintage stereo gear. Admission is free. The next show will be June 27. 

Blessing of the Bikes

The annual Blessing of the Bikes takes place Saturday, April 24, at 1 p.m. at the St. Patrick Church of Arcola. Each year, motorcycle riders are blessed by a priest. The event is free and will take place rain or shine. 

An after party is set from 2-7 p.m. at 12115 Carroll Road that will feature food, drinks, 50/50 raffle, and live music by Big Dick and the Penetrators. Bikes will be able to park in the yard, but there is very limited car parking.

Drink in some soda

Combine members of the local acts The Kickbacks and The Illegals and what do you get? SODA (System of Dying Angels), a System of a Down tribute band. 

The band pays homage to the energetic and political band that obliterated the boundaries of modern metal with their self-titled debut release in 1998. SODA is set to perform at The Muse on Main on Saturday, May 22, at 8 p.m. alongside Element:Indigo and Cremated Souls. The band will celebrate the 20th anniversary of System of a Down’s album Toxicity. All ages are welcome with tickets $8 presale and $10 at the door. 

SODA will also perform at the newly renovated Piere’s on Saturday, Aug. 28, alongside In Blood, Sandblasted Skin, Concentric, and The Subliminal Verses: A Midwest Tribute to Slipknot.
