It is well known that the B-52s are The World’s Greatest Party Band. And nearly forty years and over twenty million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands. Any mystery concerning the band’s longevity and ongoing appeal is immediately solved when exposed to a B-52s concert experience. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho“ to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins.
Once you’ve seen Shinyribs’ Kevin Russell on-stage and heard his band’s music, it’s impossible to
forget. Known for his outrageous outfits and antics, he’s a regular fashion icon, liable to turn up in
anything from his lime-green sherbet leisure suit to a flashing LED cloak, which he donned for a
soulful performance of “East Texas Rust” on the award-winning PBS show Austin City Limits.
