Sweet Fix will be opening for the iconic 80s band, The Tubes at B.B. King Blues Club on Tuesday, October 29th at 7:30 p.m. The show will feature songs from Sweet Fix’s first full length album, Golden Age. Fans will immediately recognize performance favorites – “Showtime”, “I Think You Love Me”, and “Bad 4 U” - while being introduced to new tunes penned by lead guitarist Ivan Anderson including, Do You Want It?, “Sometimes It’s All Too Much”, “This Ain’t Over”, and “The Last Night of Our Lives”. “True True Love”, a Sweet Fix ballad, will also make the play list.
As you may recall, The Tubes had some noteworthy and dance-worthy hits in the 80s, like, “She’s a Beauty” and “Talk To Ya Later”. Sweet Fix is the ideal opening act, particularly because their new album introduces keyboard sounds reminiscent of the 80s. According to Sweet Fix frontman Tommy Walker, “Our type of music can fit nicely with all kinds of bands from many different genres.”
Last November, Sweet Fix opened for Sebastian Bach, wowing and winning over a new audience. When asked to describe Sweet Fix’s music, lead guitarist and songwriter Ivan Anderson responded, “I say "rock," but my favorite thing about Golden Age is that, in the end, it sounds like something more rare and more strange than rock, but I don't know what it is.” Drummer Marco Santini has his own take on Golden Age, describing the album as, “Nine different styles of making love.” Catch the live performance and judge for yourself.
