BOSS SOUL – A TRIBUTE TO BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN All coming attractions
Blue Smoke Open 7:30pm – Show Time: 8:30pm
Christchurch winters are designed to bite you where it hurts, it’s their intrinsic nature, their essential reason for existence. It’s your job to face them down, heat pumps a ‘blazing, fires a ’roaring, layers a ’wrapping and if you dig music then with your ass a ’shakin’. We gotta keep it warm out there! The music of Bruce Springsteen seems custom built for the later, especially when in true Boss fashion him and his E-Street alumni put it four to the floor and indulge the soul influences so prevalent in theirs and the greater sound of the Jersey Shore.
With this in mind, a heavyweight thundercrack band of chch musicians have decided to face down winter using the force of Bruuuuuuuuccccceeee. Featuring members of The Eastern, The Black Velvet Band, The Soulmates, The Haunters and a zillion more, they have devoted all their off time to harness the power hour after cold dark hour this July in order to warm you ass up!
But also to hustle you for some canned food to donate to the thinning shelves of CHCH foodbanks who are doing it more than tough this winter. It’s a warmth for warmth kinda deal. Something in keeping with the spirit of the boss, this bunch of shivering singers and players reckon; freeing your feet for the bar floor but also your generosity for the greater good.
The show will quake at the large and in charge Blue Smoke in Woolston, where hot soul food and bottled happiness will keep the fires burning!
