Listening Party at Proud Larrys’ for new Oxford Supergroup

As we mentioned last issue, there’s a new all-instrumental super group in town, featuring guitarist George McConnell, drummer Ted Gainey, guitarist Eric Deaton, organist Robert Chaffe, and bassist Slade Lewis.
The new-and-yet-unnamed super group has a Kickstarter campaign to help release the album, name the band, and there’s a “Listening Party” at Proud Larrys’ on Thursday, March 17 during Happy Hour. Attendees will have a chance to listen to the new LP and throw some possible band names into the hat. This St. Patrick’s Day Listening Party starts at 5 pm with crawfish and beer specials. The Local Voice Ligature
