This Saturday night, April 2nd, back from their exclusive five month tour of Europe, Scandinavia, and the subcontinent, the Sandbar Drafthouse presents live and in person, the legendary Rockers, Cosmic Rhythm for an all out night of high throttle, pulse pounding and intense music on overdrive.
As high energy and devastatingly talented artists, Cosmic Rhythm has become one of our regions legends, and has captivated and excited countless audiences.
Made up of ultra talented musicians that include Josh Maloney on Guitar, Eric Louis on Guitar, Terry Hokaj on Bass, Chris DeDionisio on Keyboard, Stan Zlotkowski on Drums, and Nick Vigs on Percussion and Guitar, along with Mike Agostini on Vocals, Cosmic Rhythm takes you on a rollercoaster ride of sight and sound that is like a rocket ship to the stratosphere.
Legitimately one of the most passionate groups of musicians playing out in our scene today, Cosmic Rhythm pays tribute to the music of bands such as The Grateful Dead, REM, Pearl Jam, Phish, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and the Rolling Stones, along with many others in an ever-evolving set list that delivers a plethora of musical hits with the most gifted musicianship and the most awesome presentations.
Among the cavalcade of musical masterpieces that Cosmic Rhythm cranks out are “Handshake Drugs” by Wilco, “Shakedown Street” by Grateful Dead, “Echoes” by Pink Floyd, “Mr. Charlie” by Grateful Dead, “Jane Says” by Jane’s Addiction,” Light Up or Leave Me Alone” by Traffic, “Sample in a Jar” by Phish, and “Hey Hey What Can I Do?” by Led Zeppelin, along with far too many more to list.
As a very special treat, this Saturday’s show will feature a performance by special guest Katherine Thornton, one of the most talented and versatile female singers in our area.
Vivacious, gifted, captivating, and charming are just a few words that could be used to describe the stage presence of Thornton, though no phrase more accurately depicts Thornton’s performances as well as brilliant musical artistry.
With an astonishingly full sound, and a singular style that is all their own, and a flood of enchanting and sweeping grooves, flawless musicianship, and a marvelous approach to their music, Cosmic Rhythm is a true joy, and a must see band that turns just another night out into an event to remember.
This Saturday’s show is no joke, it is by far the best event in town, and a must attend for any fan of Classic Rock, amazing music, and extreme good times.
Like every Cosmic Rhythm event, this Saturday’s performance will always keep your fingers snapping, your toes tapping, and will have the whole audience out on the dance floor all night.
The show starts at 9pm, and the Sandbar Drafthouse is located at 2835 W. 8th Street in Erie. For more information on Cosmic Rhythm, their other show dates and booking information, please visit their Facebook page.
