Barrence Whitfield and the Savages

[INDIE] If you’d like to see some dudes go insane, this is the show for you. Barrence Whitfield is a punk rock, Americana (yes, both) nut who gives every ounce of energy he’s got to keep us full-throttle fans entertained. Whitfield does this with crazy good—Little Richard good—soulful screams and vocals and a compact, Sonicesque, accompaniment that blasts off with a range of dance party anthems, cover songs, and mosh pit-starting energy. Whitfield’s band, the Savages, includes guitarist Peter Greenberg, Phil “Mr. Tenacious” Lenker on bass, drummer Andy Jody and Tom Quartulli on saxophone, and started touring in the 1980s when Whitfield was fresh out of college.The band went on to tour with Bo Diddley and Tina Turner and critics have promised that their second time around is just as authentic and crazy as it was in the 1980s. The prospects are promising for this one; he seemed to have dumped a bottle of champagne onto his head during a recent show in Finland. Buffalo’s The Naggs will start the night off. If you’re into bands like The Black Keys, The Sonics, or The Fleshtones, check out Barrence Whitfield and the Savages at Mohawk Place on Monday, September 19.
