Captain Midnight Band 2018
Internationally-ignored superstar, Captain Midnight is the world’s only known purveyor of “Waterbed Rock & Roll”.
Crunchy Rock Guitar Riffs, Thick R&B Grooves, and Soaring Vocal Harmonies combine to create a unique, yet familiar soundscape for jammy anthems, sci-fi imagery, and humorous adult situations.
The sexy, slick production on the band's four studio albums have certainly raised a few earbrows, but any fan will tell you that "Waterbed Rock & Roll" translates best in a live setting.
Formed in pre-Katrina New Orleans, and currently based in Nashville, The Captain Midnight Band has developed a sound which shamelessly borrows from both cities’ musical heritages. Songcraft, showmanship, and the right amount of grease combine to fuse stye, substance, and groove, while relentless touring and experimentation seasons the overall presentation.
The Captain Midnight Band's diverse appeal has resulted in club, theater, and festival dates with such acts as Dark Star Orchestra, moe, Cypress Hill, Twiddle, Jimmy Herring Band, Larry Keel, Leftover Salmon, Cornmeal, N.R.P.S., Del McCoury, Karl Denson, Col. Bruce Hampton, Keller Williams, TAUK, and many more more.
Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the live show, where a genuine, energetic exchange is crafted and nurtured between band, fans, and whoever is lucky enough to be in the vicinity.
