The Sonics are in Groningen this weekend for Rhythm & Bluesnight01-05-2014
Of all garage bands that made a glorious racket in the 1960s, few if any were louder, wilder, or more raw than The Sonics, a Tacoma, WA quintet whose over-the-top style, complete with roaring guitars, pounding drums, and the fevered howls of lead singer Gerry Roslie, anticipated the mania of punk and pushed rock & roll deep into the red zone during their 1963-1966 heyday. The Sonics were stars in Washington, but it took a while for the rest of the world to catch on, and in time they would become one of the most fabled bands on the Pacific Northwest rock scene.
In late 2007 The Sonics regrouped and started touring again. The Sonics today includes: Jerry Roslie keys, lead vocals, Rob Lind, sax, harp and vocals; Larry Parypa, guitar bkg vocals, Dusty Watson drums; Freddie Dennis bass and vocals . This weekend The Sonics will be back in the Netherlands for ONE show:
