Punk Rock N’ Roll Guitarist Wanted for Crazy Man Crazy (Philadelphia PA)

November 9th, 2010  / Author: Michael Subvert

We’re revamping our sound and going for a marriage of punk rock and vintage rock n’ roll. If you play guitar and you want to join the band, check out the details below and drop us a line:

Punk Rock N’ Roll Guitarist Wanted (Philadelphia PA)

Seeking guitar for a punk rock band firmly rooted in 50s-era blues and rock and roll. Think Cramps. Ramones, Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers… but we wanna make something of our own, not just an imitation.

Pumped up covers of old blues and vintage rock n’ roll (Big Joe Turner, Trashmen, The Robins, Buddy Holly, Nat Adderley, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Willie Dixon, etc.) and originals with the same tone.

We plan to rehearse weekly in the Philadelphia area. Long term we want to record an album and tour.

Crazy Man Crazy needs a new guitar player (Philadelphia, PA)

August 28th, 2010  / Author: Michael Subvert

Crazy Man Crazy needs a new guitar player (Philadelphia, PA)

Crazy Man Crazy guitarist Julian Root will be embarking upon a country-wide musical odyssey very shortly, and so has bowed out of the band. We’ll miss him, cuz he’s a good friend and a talented guy!

We’re seeking a new guitar player (either permanent or a fill-in for the Johnny Cash Tribute coming up in Philly on Sat, October 30th), to play 50s-style rock n’ roll, blues, country n’ swing originals and covers.

We rehearse Thursday nights in Upper Darby, just 15 minutes west of Philly.

You can hear 3 of our originals at:

http://www.myspace.com/crazymanblues

We also cover Hank Williams, Eddie Cochran, Elvis, Johnny Cash, etc.

If interested, email me at michaelsubvert@msn.com or call me at 610-931-1690.

Thanks!

Philadelphia Brothers Reunion replaces Crazy Man Crazy at Aug 7th show in Philadelphia

July 28th, 2010  / Author: Michael Subvert

The Blues/R&B band Philadelphia Brothers Reunion will be replacing Crazy Man Crazy at the August 7th ALL AGES show at the Rotunda.

I would like to thank the Brothers for stepping into the gap while I go up to New Hampshire to spend some time with my mother, who is in the hospital again due to cancer.

Thanks also to Crazy Man Crazy guitarist Julian Root for taking over the responsibility of finding another band and running the show. I have some awesome friends, no doubt.

Details on the show are below. See y’all when I get back…
