Drytown Club hosts pig roast, luau

-A +A
Well known Santa Cruz-based saxophonist Jim Hannibal joins Drytown Club’s house band The Leather Souls Aug. 18 during the venue’s seventh Annual Luau BBQ Party. The club is located at 15950 Highway 16 in Drytown. The tenor sax player was a student in the well-known Cabrillo College jazz program. Since then, he has performed with greats such as Dallas Hodge from Canned Heat, Carmen Grillo from Tower of Power, and Jerry Miller of Moby Grape. Since 2005, Drytown Club has celebrated the birthday of its “angel” — the energetic dancer Angel Bright — with a pig roast and music show. Drytown Club owner Allen Frank claims Angel is the matron saint of the venue. “She’s doing what everyone inside them wishes they could do, and that’s just let your hair down,” Frank claimed. “She’s just a free spirit. She loves to dance; that’s her workout.” And dancing, everyone will do. In addition to the pig roast, the Leather Souls will play blues and rock music throughout the night. The blending of Hannibal’s tenor sax is a perfect complement to the melodic tones of Frank’s guitar. “It brings the music of the Leather Souls to another plateau,” Frank noted. Admission for the Luau Barbecue is $15, which includes the show, dinner and one free drink. For more information, call (209) 245-3054. ~ Staff report
