The Iron County Acoustic Music Association presents its final spring concert with Full Tilt Boogie in an all-acoustic concert at 7 p.m. Friday at Community Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 2279 Wedgewood Lane, Cedar City. The venue set is café style and is family-friendly and alcohol-free. This concert will be the last chance to experience the mellow vibe of the ICAMA series this spring season. Shows will resume again in mid-September.
Full Tilt Boogie is a local favorite, known for original arrangements and note-for note covers of large musical works such as the Beatles White Album and Pink Floyd’s The Wall. They recently produced a self-titled cd of original songs. This show will be a departure for the band with an all-acoustic concert of original and well-known folk, folk-rock, and blues.
Songsmith Steven Swift fronts the band with guitar and lead vocals. Swift writes most of the band’s original songs and has released two solo cds on the Groovacious Platters label. Rhett Boswell is a “guitar players’ guitar player” and has been performing in southern Utah bands for many years. Rhett shares the songwriting duties and also joins Steve on vocals. Chuck Triplett keeps the band rolling with his dynamic bass play. Some may recognize Chuck as the monkey-masked bass player in Bottled Monkey. Veteran drummer Kyle Gower brings over 20 years drumming experience to the stage with a velvet voice and and tight back beat.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the music starts at 7 p.m. A suggested donation of $5 per person helps promote live acoustic music in Iron County.
