THE HOOTERS ROCK THE ELECTRIC FACTORY!

They’re calling it the 33 1/3 Show and with good reason. It’s a clever pun on the LP and it’s also been that long since they first played out together as a band. It was a little spot in Levittown called Matti’s Place where Philadelphia music history was launched. They called themselves The Hooters after the distinct melodica that permeated their music and they combined a thrilling mix of ska and reggae and pop. And they’ve been doing it since those heady days of the 80’s and now return with a rare hometown show. 
 
They all still live locally and work in various musical endeavors but it’s not often that Philly gets a fullblown Hooters show. They often spend the summers touring Germany and other far flung countries where they headline arenas. And now, they celebrate their longevity with a show at The Electric Factory on Saturday April 27. It’s amazing that after all these years, the band has stayed pretty much intact. Eric Bazilian on guitars and vocals, Rob Hyman on keyboards and vocals, John Lilley on guitar, and David Uosikkinen on drums. Fran Smith Jr. on bass is the “newest” member and he’s been with the band since the late 80’s! Opening the show will be the highly acclaimed and Philadelphia based band Good Old War.
 
And great news on the PA. front: April 30 will be declared THE HOOTERS DAY by the Pa. State Senate. A deserving honor for a band that has brought much joy and music to the state and Philadelphia (“the town that rocked the nation - Philadelphia Pa!”).
 
Relive those Chestnut Cabaret days! Time to dance dance dance. These boys can still do it. Click to hear my interview with Eric and then get those tickets. (by the way, this picture is from WAY BACK in the day!!!)
