EARLVILLE - Wammo is a spanker. So is a guy named Sick and another who goes by the tag, Nevada. Along with the other four members of the Asylum Street Spankers, the trio of inventive handles will take center stage Saturday at the Earlville Opera House as part of their 2006 cross-country tour.
The Spankers’ different kind of sound has blown in from Texas and will open at 8 p.m. at the East Main Street venue. According to EOH Executive Director Patricia Lockwood-Blais and several other reviewers, the band belts a unique sound, sports a look that is all their own and has a stage presence like few others.
“This band is unique in many ways. They take inspiration from American music of the 1920’s and 30s, but throw a hillbilly jazz, jugband twist on it and apply a wild and bawdy mindset to the lyrics,” Lockwood-Blais said.
