Igor and Red Elvises (SIBERIAN SURF ROCK)
If Igor and Red Elvises aren’t in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one – this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band.
Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed “Siberian Surf Rock”. Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba and many other instruments. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor’s unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock’n’roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout.
Tampa Bay-based “power lounge” combo Vodkanauts work their magic in a musical parallel universe, simultaneously paying respectful tribute to musical masters while creating a soundtrack to a mid-to-late 20th century America that never quite was but should have been. Equally at home on a festival stage before a crowd of thousands or in an intimate nightclub setting, Vodkanauts excel at performing time-tested tunes with inventive arrangements, delivered with a heightened level of showmanship and crowd-pleasing energy.
