This week, the Funky Biscuit is serving up four piping hot days of buttery, savory, fragrant music. Biscuit Fest 2013 is presenting a slew of acts, including Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, the Heavy Pets, Tommy Malone, Albert Castiglia, and Bobby Lee Rodgers.
Rodgers says of the musical meal soon to be devoured in Boca, it has "a wonderful lineup with endless musical possibilities." He encourages others to "come on out." The musician himself will play a big role in those infinite possibilities. He's sitting in with numerous bands working his magic on the guitar and banjo.
When asked what bands will be graced with Rodger's presence, he says, "It might be random. I really don't know. I'm an artist at large. That means I'm sitting in with bands. I don't even know if they know yet."
Besides a kickin' lineup chock full of musical surprises, ticket prices are pretty cheap, around the 20 buck range.
Shall we compare to Maroon 5, where prices started at $70 or the great Eric Clapton, where tickets began at $105? You don't have to be a mathematician to realize that all four days are most likely cheaper than nosebleeds to most overplayed mainstream concerts (and sure Clapton and Maroon 5 are overplayed, but we'll listen to that shit all day long).
The Biscuit'll be piping hot starting tonight with plenty of drink specials and some meal deals. For a complete list of performers and the schedule, visit funkybiscuit.com
