May 29, 2009 -- Ticky Tacky

The first-ever band that actually originated at The City Wine Sellar is BACK by popular demand to rock you out in true Ticky-Tacky fashion.
Having lunch one day at City Wine, the eternally optimistic and notorious "we'll try anything" couple, Bill and Britney Luton, said something along the lines of, "Hey, we can put together a band. Why don't you book US on a Friday night?" Tactfully not letting them in on the fact that I hear some variation of this comment at least five times a month, I nervously pencilled (note pencilled) them in under "Bill and Britney." They didn't yet have a name for their band. Within the hour, they had their name and were walking out the door making plans for their gig.
True to form, they put on an amazing show of rock, pop, and top 40 tunes -- a ticky tacky performance of songs from an eclectic mix of genres. I'm glad they didn't tell me until AFTER their first show that they had only had practiced a couple of times as a group!
They've re-grouped, so to speak, with a new member, Toby Tate, have written some original tunes, expanded their playlist, and have actually practiced for their May 29th gig. So, expect an even more electrifying show on the 29th. They'll play from 7-10 pm; Deli fare served till 9 pm. Call 252-335-1163 for more information
