chuck lambert band

wednesday december 3rd, 2014 - 10 pm

Chuck Lambert, a blues veteran of over 40 years, along with his band, are a spirited, driving force within the blues community. They combine Chicago and Texas- style blues, Kansas City jump, and a bit of their own personal flavor to deliver a performance of extreme emotional dynamic. The Asbury Park Press refers to Lambert as the type of performer who “specializes in the kind of intensity driving buttkicking electric blues that makes you think of players from an earlier era who helped define the art.”

saturday - 7 pm

With dueling harmonicas, a scintillating sousaphone, and the mysterious sheng (the ancient Chinese mouth organ), the band runs the gamut of genres and instrumentation.

Lead Wade Schuman will send the audience home humming & stomping after the romping, dynamic and passionately unique experience that is Hazmat Modine.
