Frankie & the Pool Boys – CD release party!
at Forbidden Island
1304 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Frankie and the Pool Boys celebrate the release of their new album “Spin the Bottle” with a dance party at Forbidden Island Tiki Bar in Alameda. The band will play every song from the new 20 track CD, including the new single (yes, vinyl!) “Tan Line Fever.” Special guests joining the band include Dusty Watson (The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange) who also produced “Spin the Bottle” and, for the first time ever, the all instrumental band will have vocalists singing with them– Tony Bald from country band The Whateverglades and jazz chanteuse Kayla Fowler will recreate their performances from the album. Local legend Dave Seabury (The Rave Ups, The Chuckleberries and so many more) will join on harmonica. The night is also a bon voyage send-off for the band as they embark on a long summer tour taking them through Germany, Italy, the Northeast and SoCal here in the U.S. The Pool Boys are a headliner at the three day Surfer Joe Festival inLivorno Italy.
Frankie and the Pool Boys have a long association with Forbidden Island, this being their 15th show there, and celebrate the tiki bar with “Kill Devil Club”, a new song dedicated to Forbidden Island’s exclusive society (you have to taste every one of the 99+ rums in the house to join!)
Spin the Bottle is being released on Double Crown Records (Bellingham, WA) and the Tan Line Fever single is being released on Asbury Park, NJ’s Hi-Tide Recordings.
