The Devilish Winks - Deep Cricket Night - The New 35 Tue, Apr 12 - 8pm - $7 The Devilish WinksDeep Cricket NightThe New 35 From our humble beginnings as the folk/rock duo Neil and Nick, The Devilish Winks have bloomed into a six-piece ensemble of folk and classical-influenced rock and roll. Drummer Nick Christiansen and Guitarist Neil Huff founded the group in May of 2012, and since the additions of Sandy Van Laningham (Vocals, Keyboard), Shawn Neely (Bass), Dave Keller (Electric guitar) and Dov Turner (Clarinet/Saxophone), the band has never sounded better! If there's one reason why the world should listen to us, it's our love for diversity in song. From eerie piano pieces blended with luscious acoustic guitar, sultry saxophone and beautiful clarinet to the epic pounding rhythms of riff-based rock'n'roll, topped with soaring and screaming distorted guitar solos, belted sax lines and vocal harmonies that shimmer and shine like a new Chevy in the sun. From the clean tone of the acoustic to the distorted romp and wail of the electric, The Devilish Winks are sojouners of the sonic spectrum in more ways than one.
