Ripping it up with Low Cut Connie

Low Cut Connie, the loud and louche rock and roll combo fronted by Cherry Hill native piano man Adam Weiner and Birmingham, England drummer-guitarist Dan Finnemore, cut loose at Ray's Happy Birthday Bar on Monday afternoon in South Philadelphia in advance of their headlining set at Johnny Brenda's on Friday night.

Low Cut Connie, the loud and louche rock and roll combo fronted by Cherry Hill native piano man Adam Weiner and Birmingham, England drummer-guitarist Dan Finnemore, cut loose at Ray's Happy Birthday Bar on Monday afternoon in South Philadelphia in advance of their headlining set at Johnny Brenda's on Friday night.

My interview with the boys in the band at Ray's is in the Thursday Inquirer and here. Tom Gralish's video of Low Cut Connie playing "S--- Shower & Shave" with bar owner Lou Capozzoli on sax is below, as is "Boozaphlia," the clip for the current single from the band's freewheeling and very fine new album Call Me Sylvia. Take a look at both of them and you'll get an idea at just how good of a live act Low Cut Connie is.

I took the picture above, which features Neil Duncan on guitar, Ian Vos on bass, Finnemore on drums and Weiner on piano, with Capazolli honking his horn at center. Ticket info for the Johnny Brenda's show, with Adam & Dave's Bloodline, is here
