The 5 Card Studs are a group of veteran players whose diverse backgrounds combine to bring subtlety and precision to top 40 A.M. Gold hits and forgotten favorites. Their love and respect for music’s artistic anomalies comes through in their deftly-executed renditions of songs whose performers you might not remember but the tunes you will. They reach back to early years of rock and roll and hit all the strong points coming forward: sixties pop and soul, seventies rock, funk and disco as well as yacht rock favorites. The Studs pride themselves on their attention to detail with guitar sounds meticulously worked
out, string and horn parts not ignored, and vocals — well you need to see it to believe it! There’s a reason this band opens for legends when they come through town.
