Yeah, baby. It's on. Four of Salem's music groups celebrate two of the most important bands in history. This night each band dawns the personage of their chosen group -- in this case either The Beatles or The Rolling Stones -- for a versus showdown of musical and inspirational rock and roll glory!
The Pumps (Rolling Stones):
The Pumps are an original rock 'n' roll quartet from the Willamette Valley. This riff heavy band has been hovering around Oregon for almost a decade as local favorites Devil's Punchbowl and The Hornswogglers. The Pumps enjoy blending punk rock, "classic" rock and blues into a sound that harkens back to the days of turning an amp up to "eleven". The Salem Weekly "Live Beat" column has deemed the group, "a combination of jazzy breakdowns and swing a-licious swagger"
Magical Mystery Four (The Beatles):
A band formed out of opportunity. When Jarred Venti (bass) heard about a Beatles vs. Stones show in the works, he jumped at the chance to pull together some of his talented fellow Beatle-worshippers to learn a Beatles set. A supergroup of sorts, M.M.F. is comprised of members of different Salem bands with Justin Smith and Blaine Vogt on guitar and vocals, Silas Prince on drums, and Jarred Venti on bass and vocals. They don't wear wigs, they don't dress up, and they don't impersonate (mostly because Jarred can't play bass left handed). Though at times they may throw in an unexpected twist that makes your ears perk, The Magical Mystery Four simply plays Beatles songs and plays them well.
The Unfabulous Five (Rolling Stones)
This crew of usual suspects and seasoned musicians are excited to bring you their version of the seminal Rolling Stones with a Motown twist.
D. House (The Beatles):
D. House was born in a nuclear swamp and mutated into something drastic. Their style is reminiscent of Bon Iver fighting a dino at a private art party in Brooklyn, New York. The members do not publicly divulge their names to to being fugitive renegades on the brink of being insane. Their inspiration consists of weasels, trees and community unification best notarized in a tragedies' aftermath.
