As shock-rock performer Screamin’ Jay Hawkins once said “When we get on that stage all hell is going to break loose.”
PhilaMOCA pays tribute to rock ’n’ roll wild man Screamin’ Jay Hawkins with a bewitching evening of stories and song!
First up, author Steve Bergsman will be in attendance to celebrate the release of his brand new biography I Put A Spell On You: The Bizarre Life of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. He’ll read from his new book and take questions from the audience, books will be available for purchase/signing.
And making their Philadelphia debut, the Resurrection of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins Band will perform two full 45 minute sets of Screamin’ Jay’s classics! Led by Mike Armando, Hawkins’s original guitarist from the 1970’s, Mike says, “The Resurrection strives to recreate the bizarre joy of Screamin’ Jay’s performances with all the craziness even going as far as sitting on a toilet bowl when performing Screamin’ Jay’s Constipation Blues.”
