The Geomatic Attic got their season off to a rollicking start, Sept. 26 and 27 with two superb shows beginning with Danny Michel on Sunday.

However, Monday’s show featured sizzling blues with Darryl Düus, backed by Brad Brouwer on drums and bassist Jason Schultchen who roared through a couple blues classics like Howlin’ Wolf’s  “Killing Floor”  and several other uptempo blues numbers.


But the main event was  the Weber Brothers who blasted into an up beRyan Weber plays bass while hi brother Sam stands on it to solo.

Stuffed blackbirds adorned their mic stands and the band all dressed in suits and ties, but the music shone through a set of everything from Beatles-style Brit-pop to hard core rockabilly, to more indie rock influences.


 They had impressive three part vocal harmonies. Stand up bass player Ryan Weber, whose long hair flew all over the place as he banged his head while doing most of the lead vocals while playing wild, slapping bass solos. He also took a turn on trumpet on the first sweaty, energetic number.


Shai Cookie Peer, the  keyboardist/ organist was a manic sight to see, jumping up and down, his fingers a blur on the keyboards, as he beamed ear to ear.


One highlight  was the bluesy “Struggle  All Night Long” as was “Sell, Sell, Sell.”

Guitarists Sam Weber and Tim Bracken both took a turn at lead vocals while adding tasteful harmonized guitar solos.  Drummer Emmet Corndog Van Etten also sang one number.


 They threw everything in the show and looked ready to play well into the night . By the end though they had a few people dancing in the aisles and everybody bobbing in their seats.
