May 9, 2008 -- Ticky Tacky is Back!

According to Websters, Ticky Tacky means "shoddy and unimaginatively designed; flimsy and dull." I doubt this is an accurate description of the group that will be playing at The City Wine Sellar on Friday night. Band members include: Bill Luton, Britney Luton, Hot Hoidal (aka Charlie Hoidal), and Mindy Luton. They play a hodgepodge of hits from the classics to today's hits, with some 90s rock thrown in for good measure. Ticky Tacky will play from 7:00-10:00 pm. Deli fare will be served until 9:00 pm.  Call 335-1163 for more information
