Music Scene: Rehab
Compiled by TAMMY GEMAEHLICH
Google “Rehab” and you’ll get a wide range of websites, some wanting to reach out to those in need, others touting the woes of singer Amy Winehouse.
Somewhere in the plethora of search engine hits, you’ll find links for Rehab, the band who made you feel sorry for the guy “Sittin’ at a Bar,” waiting for the cops to show up after crashing his girl’s car.
Rehab will play its mixture of southern rock, dirty south rap, reggae, alternative and ‘90s rock/rap on Friday, Sept. 10, at Mesa Theater and Club, 538 Main St.
According the Rehab’s bio at iTunes, “the Southern hip-hop duo called Rehab were literally a product of their namesake. Original members Danny Boone and Brooks Buford, both recovering alcoholics and drug addicts, met at a local rehab facility and connected over their love of music.”
The duo released a debut album, “Southern Discomfort,” in 2000 on the Sony label. Two years were spent on the road supporting the album, then Boone and Buford parted ways, with Boone retained the band name and recruiting four veteran musicians to create a new Rehab. The group released “Graffiti the World” in 2005, which included “Sittin’ at a Bar.”
The famous drinking song, in which the singer laments his predicament of having “broke my parole to have a good time,” was later renamed “Bartender Song.”
The doors open at 8 p.m. and the show is at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for the all ages show and can be purchased at http://www.ticketweb.com.
