Over the course of several releases: 2009’s ‘The Great Affairs’, 2010’s ‘Ricky took the wheels..’, 2011’s ‘Happy Ender’, and 2013’s ‘4’, The Great Affairs have undergone a not-so-subtle transformation from the dusty, Americana-leaning fare of their early works to the grittier, pop-infused rock n’ roll stylings of their latest, ‘Dream In Stereo’.
While they may have cut their teeth on KISS and The Black Crowes, or Queen and Humble Pie, The Great Affairs simultaneously draw from the Pop well of such ‘80s icons as Rick Springfield and Bon Jovi, juxtaposing these elements with the sound of more contemporary acts like The Gaslight Anthem, Butch Walker, and
The Stereophonics, to offer up the kind of sweaty, gimmick-free, big guitar anthems that’ll rattle your brain, just as easily as they might slip into lonesome troubadour mode and soothe your soul.
THE GREAT AFFAIRS are:
Denny Smith: vocals, guitars, harmonica
Patrick Miller: lead guitar, vocals
Matt Andersen: bass, vocals
Kenny Wright: vocals, drums, percussionMay is NICOLAS CAGE month at Books & Brew!!! Come by and check out their first installment – National Treasure from 10:30pm-12:30am.
About the movie:
Historian and code-breaker Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) has been searching his whole life for a rumored treasure dating back to the creation of the United States. Joining an expedition led by fellow treasure hunter Ian Howe (Sean Bean), Gates finds an ice-locked Colonial ship in the Arctic Circle that contains a clue linking the treasure to the Declaration of Independence. But when Howe betrays him, Gates has to race to get to the document ahead of his so-called colleague.
