The 427s rock the surf at the Slice

Calgary surf band the 427s made a long awaited return to Lethbridge, Friday, June 8 to play an awesome show of instrumental music inspired by surf music, cheesy ’50s of black and white films spy movies, showinChris Van Keir and Eve Hell of the 427s playing the Slice.

The band, dressed sharply in suits,  were tight and a lot of fun. Guitarists Rob Day and Chris van Keir, bassist Eve Hell and drummer Wrayne Ramone played a fun set of upbeat, catchy, twangy, instrumental music.

 Eve and Chris  Van Keir ended their first set by wandering onto the dance floor and stood on a couple of tables to play “Squad Car.”

 They started set two  on a slower, sultry note as Van Keir switched to a  gorgeous Gretsch guitar while Rob Day switched to an acoustic guitar,  but soon picked up the pace.

Local surf rock band the Atomicos opened the show, but I was unable to catch them.
