This is a past event.

J. Roddy Walston & the Business/Roger Hoover 

When: Tue., June 23, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $16
In the tradition of guys like Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino, J. Roddy Walston doesn’t just play the piano. He bangs away on the keys like a man possessed. Essential Tremors, the latest studio album he recorded with his backing band, the Business, is a collection of raw garage rock tunes that have the same kind of swagger you hear in tunes by Kings of Leon and the Black Keys. So how the hell did Walston learn to play the piano? His grandmother was a gospel/honky tonk country piano player who taught him the tricks of the trade. Walston, who insists he'll never play keyboards, tours with a piano and puts on a helluva show. The last time he played Cleveland, he said a rather "rowdy" crowd showed up for the gig. Expect the same this time around. (Niesel)
