Ghost Stroke performs Thursday, February 28, at Tobacco Road, 626 S Miami Avenue, Miami. The show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets cost $5. Those 21 and older are welcome with ID. Call 305-378-1198, or visit www.tobacco-road.com.
With only a handful of live performances to date, local act Ghost Stroke is already making waves. The quartet comes fully equipped with a seasoned vocalist, a Berklee alum guitarist, a Warner Bros. veteran as a bassist, and a drummer with a Ringo Starr style. Influenced by artists like Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, and Sting, the boys have a knack for getting the audience to sing along to their candid lyrics and mellow beats. Just ask the Alligator Alley regulars who caught their show last month.
This will be the first time the guys of Ghost Stroke take the stage at Tobacco Road, and they'll be performing original songs such as "Coming Back," "New York Town," and "Parking Lot," off their recently released debut LP, Guitar & a Gun. The record has already garnered international airplay in countries like Brazil and Mexico, and thanks to the Internet, their worldwide fan base grows every day. Come prepared for a hell of a show.
