Rascal Martinez Band - Friday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m.

With a voice rising “out of the Nebraska plain like cool summer swell,” Rascal Martinez blends rockabilly, folk, country and Latin sounds into covers, standards and heartfelt originals. Although still in his mid-twenties, the young Martinez’ unique roots music awakens memories of early rock artists with a sound that has been described as “resonant and fresh, yet familiar.” Martinez‘ deep, raspy country twang is mixed with strong lead guitar licks, a pounding bass guitar, strong drum beats and backup vocals. While he has become something of a national touring force, the singer has stayed close to his Nebraska roots. “Sutherland is a small town,” Martinez said. “It’s very simple living. . . . The songs I write are very simple. They’re kind of a Midwest look at life and relationships.”

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the show
