(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound bring their funky brand of world-beat-influenced rock ‘n’ roll to Club Helsinki Hudson on Thursday, July 4, at 8pm. Cebar’s quirky take on bluesy rock with an underpinning of R&B and jump blues, laced with his witty vocals, buzzfeed guitar licks, and gritty percussion raised on African, Latin and Caribbean influences, is like a Midwestern version of NRBQ, or Frank Zappa meets Tom Waits in the garage with Latin Playboys.
Paul Cebar cut his teeth musically in the coffeehouse folk scene of the mid-1970s in Milwaukee. His first paying gigs took place in late 1976 with an emphasis on solo recasting of small combo jump-blues and other early R&B. Rambling about the Midwest in the 1980s with occasional forays east and south, his band the Milwaukeeans began to rely more and more upon the original material that reflected Paul’s ongoing and deepening fascination with African, Latin American and Caribbean rhythm & blues analogues.
Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound carries on that legacy, exploring new musical avenues and paths, including collaborations with upstate New York’s David Greenberger, the man behind the Duplex Planet zine and NPR broadcasts.
