Bel Airs @ Royce Krietman’s Retirement Party @ Roca Tavern (Public Welcome)
June 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Royce and Jo are celebrating Royce’s retirement with their friends, the FABULOUS Bel Airs! The public is welcome to join the party, (just a $5 cover charge). Meet and greet at 6pm, show 7p-10p.
Fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars, with Michael Cherry on drums, the Bel Airs play a danceable mix with an authentic but eclectic bluesy-country-soul-and-rock-n-roll sound influenced by the likes of Wilson Picket, Slim Harpo, Howlin’ Wolf and Johnny Cash.
Living on the road and playing clubs from “Austin to Boston”, the Bel Airs are carrying on the tradition of American Rhythm and Blues. The band is fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars. Growing up on country soul and rock-n-roll, the Pruitt brothers have developed a harmony vocal style all their own. They have been performing together for more than 30 years, wowing audiences nightly with their unique brand of music- leading one reviewer to refer to them as the “Everly Brothers of Blues.”
With four acclaimed albums and performances at festivals and night clubs across the USA as well as England, France, Belgium and Spain, the band continues to travel extensively. The Bel Airs’ musical approach and superbly crafted showmanship make for a more than memorable concert whenever they appear.
