The Cleverly’s Come to Rhythm City Casino
The Rhythm City Casino is hosting a fun show this Thursday. I know many of our listeners are not only "not fans of" country music...but are actively "anti" country music.
But if you've got a great sense of humor this one might be a little different for you.
The Cleverly's are a band that takes popular songs that might be blasting out of your daughters earbuds and puts a country spin on them. Dirty bluegrass versions of Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears.
They take Justin Timberlake, fill him with moonshine and make him date his cousin.
If you're willing to look past the twang, fiddle & banjo for some good comedy and excellent musicians then this is going to be a fun, out of the ordinary show for you on Rhythm Room on Thursday, January 21st.
The Cleverly's are a one-of-a-kind comedy/music blend coming from the remote part of the Ozark Mountains, near Cane Spur, Arkansas.Digger Cleverly, along with his nephews Ricky Lloyd, Sock, DVD and Cub, make up The Cleverly's. They have traveled the globe, if the globe only consisted of the United States, performing at music venues and some of the nation’s largest festivals like Stagecoach, Telluride, CMA Music Fest and even the Grand Ole Opry.The New York Times wrote, "If Earl Scruggs, Dolly Parton, and Spinal Tap spawned a litter of puppies, it would be the Cleverlys.”Don’t be fooled by this faux-family band – they are all accomplished musicians putting their unique bluegrass spin on cover songs from any genre. The Cleverlys’ set list includes genius arrangements of tunes like Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” a medley of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” and Flo Rida’s “Low” that recently went viral on Facebook, with over 11 million views from a local TV appearance.Rolling Stone Magazine says Digger’s “out-of-date eyeglasses are as thick as his hillbilly accent, but whose comic sensibilities are a hilariously off-kilter hybrid of Homer & Jethro and The Office.”Must be 21+ to attend.Tickets will be sold in two-top and four-top tables. $25 a ticket.
