Ohio Brass & Electric (OB&E) will be at Bogeys Bar & Grill on Friday, February 8th starting at 8:30pm. We hope you'll join us for an evening of fun and funky music that'll make your shoes beg you to take them out on the dance floor! Yellow Springs’ newest band, OB&E, is an 11-piece horn band covering a wide variety of artists, songs, and genres. Members include classically-trained musicians, voice instructors, former members of Red Idle and The UnderCovered, and horn players from the Yellow Springs Community Band. There is no cover charge for the event on Friday.
Working with Prime Time Emmy-winning audio engineer and composer Tim Berger, the group will play classic horn-drenched songs from a variety of genres. You’ll recognize most of the hits, but there will be a few surprises. Look for songs by bands and singers including Sarah Vaughan, Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, the Dap Kings, Tower of Power, Joe Cocker, Elton John, the Commodores, and many more.
If you've never been to Bogeys, it's the clubhouse for the Rocky Lakes golf course, which is about five miles north of Yellow Springs on Route 68, almost to Walt's Auto, but on the other side of the road -- right behind the Mayberry Marathon station. They serve a full menu until late in the evening, including pizza, sandwiches, steaks, burgers, wings, etc. -- and there's plenty of free parking.
Band members include Barbara Leeds (keyboard), Bob Fannin (trumpet), Brady Karns (vocals/percussion), Cindy Lincoln (vocals/percussion), Darla Logan (bass), Diana Ditty (baritone sax), Doug Roberts (trombone), Emily Seibel (vocals/percussion), Lynn Peterson (alto sax), Mek Logan (drums), and Skip Leeds (guitar).
