Slam Bang Performed Live At The Thirsty Whale Reunion

Dark Star Records Recording Artist Slam Bang ripped it up at this years Thirsty Whale Reunion Party. The event was held on October 22nd and 23rd 2010. The band performed favorites like “Somebody New” as well as the theme song to the movie Jezebeth “She’s Calling Out Your Name” with special guest “Bob Slawek” on vocals. The reunion bash received a ton of press and caught the attention of former Chicago Sun Times Columnist Jim DeRogatis. Here is an excerpt from his blog: Last year, Tony “Shark” Labarbera, a fixture at the late, lamented heavy-metal roadhouse the Thirsty Whale, held a reunion for fans, friends, and former fixtures of the place to celebrate its hard-rocking legacy. It was a hit, and there’ll be an encore party this year starting at 6 this evening and 5:30 p.m. tomorrow at Shark City, 2240 Bloomingdale Road in Glendale Heights, with two stages each night and an endless roster of bands including Enuff Z’nuff, 7th Heaven, Slam Bang, Cutlass, and Paradoxx. ~ Jim DeRogatis / Chicago Music Critic
