An evening of great eighties vibes and music
The Miami band Ordinary Boys was formed eight years ago by vocalist AJ Navarrete as the ONLY true Morrissey & The Smiths tribute band in Florida. The band chose its name after the song ‘The Ordinary Boys,’ from Morrissey’s debut album ‘Viva Hate,’ and as an homage to the concept behind ‘The Smiths’ name.
They have appeared in two WMNF concerts getting the highest approval from Smiths and Moz fans, perfectly emulating the sound of their Manchester heroes. Their fun and energetic sets includes such hits as ‘How Soon is Now?’, ‘There is a Light’, ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’, ‘Ask’, ‘Big Mouth’, ‘Queen is Dead’, ‘Panic’, ‘This Charming Man’, ‘Suedehead’ and lots more.
Row Jomah is an outstanding band from Clearwater with two studio albums and a live release to their credit. Several years ago Talking Heads songs began to make their way into Row Jomah set lists. Last year the band first presented an entire set of Talking heads music. It was a spectacular success; and after that, for their Talking Heads sets (only very occasional), the five-piece band has been augmented with three more excellent musicians to become an eight-piece group capable of re-creating the most complex Talking Heads material. They played an outstanding Talking Heads set last summer at WMNF’s US Festival tribute. They only occasionally play their Talking Heads set, with overwhelming acclaim each time.
