Tio Leo’s Sunday afternoon powerpop series, Big Stir, has it’s third installation on November 17. The show will include The Arthur Alexander Band and The Test Pressings, as well as a local combo tba. All the bands will appeal to fans of melodic rock, but the Test Pressings are especially good. A true all-star combo, bassist Karen Basset is a veteran of such groups as The Pandoras and Rebel Pebbles, drummer John Borack is an accomplished author and columnist for Goldmine Magazine, while guitarist / singer Robbie Rist is an actor (Brady Bunch, Sharknado etc), voice actor (Doc McStuffins, Transformers etc) and musician (The Andersons, Wonderboy etc). Rist is a great songwriter, specializing in melody heavy earworms, but making this band extra enjoyable is an arsenal of great, rarely heard pop cover tunes. The Test Pressings are a lot of fun live, hopefully this is just the first of many area appearances.
