White Ghost Shivers Annual Halloween Ball Tonight
Come one, come all, to the Hallow’een Ball
Such ghoulish great times to be had by all!
Those White Ghost Shivers are at it again. Their annual Halloween Ball is turning 5 this year, and it’s bigger and better than ever before. However, this talented group of musicians and singers has actually been playing together for 7 years plus.
They specialize in string band music from the 1920′s and 30′s. Early jazz, hokum, vaudeville, ragtime, western swing, and hillbilly are on the menu, but they deliver it all with a punk/rock attitude. Little wonder they refer to themselves as the “Motley Crue of string bands.” Bang your head and make devil horns – but make it ol’ timey while your at it, and throw the Charleston in there somewhere.
This year, the WGS celebration takes place at the Waterford House, 2008 Brandt Rd., out around Slaughter and Hwy I-35. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. What a party it will be!
-A revival of sorts by the McMercy Family Band
