Garrison Rock Live
November 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$5
Presented by KBOE. Garrison Rock is the latest collaborative musical effort by veteran rock bassist Steve “Big John” Stainer and sensational blues guitarist Greg “Bear” Malott, who wanted to produce something “a little bit different” with their music. They quickly enlisted the aid of veteran rock singer Calvin Rush, Stainers lead singer from their barnstorming days in the Volt Rush Band, which featured Ottumwa’s own legendary guitarist, Steven Volt Morris. Rush — who did widely acclaimed stints in Driver and The Wylde with Fuzzy Klein and other southeast Iowa notables Chic Worth, Rich Durflinger, Steve Bain, Tracy Moore and others — said, “Yes,” and they began to hold rehearsals. One such rehearsal saw the attendance of outlaw country rock guitarist Russell “Fuzzy” Klein, who then joined the group as well. With the subsequent addition of Jamie Clark on drums, Garrison Rock became a full rock and roll band in the classic sense of the term, delivering a unique and refreshing blend of rock, blues, folk and country music that’s sure to shake the foundations of any live venue.
