ETTB 40TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW
WITH REUNION OF BAND’S ORIGINAL 1975 LINEUP!
20 Greenwoods Rd. W.
Eight to the Bar is 40 years old this year and we are celebrating (along w/the original 1975 lineup) at CT's finest concert hall & bistro, Infinity Hall in Norfolk! If you've never seen a photo of this historic, beautiful theater, you should visit their website, www.infinityhall.com, as words don't do it justice. The theater has two stories of seating, a wooden dance floor area, and an incredible gourmet bistro on the ground floor featuring innovative, fantastic cuisine, and live music 5-6 nights a week! The walls are decorated with stunning, rare photos of iconic music figures from the 60s up to the present and with ambience like this, playing there is a special experience for any band. On this evening, the original lineup of 1975 will take the stage first and play for the first hour followed by intermission and then the current lineup. At the end of the night, the 75ers will join the current lineup for a fun finale together. The entire event will be filmed by a multicamera company and recorded on a remote 24-track audio recorder.
You can be a part of it! If you never see another ETTB show again in your life, this is the one to see!
