Hurricane Felix and the Manik Men bring back rockabilly

E-mail Print PDF

Hurricane Felix made a long awaited return to Lethbridge, July 2 with a hot new band the Manik Men backing the Calgary based upright bassist/ vocalist. The last time I saw them in Lethbridge was 2013 to play a Show at the Geomatic Attic. For the Deathbridge Derby Dames.

 He had two guitarists sharing rhythm and lead duties.

 They opened their second set for a handful of people with surf classic “Mirsirlou” and  continued in an energetic Stay Cats I/ classic rockabilly vein.


“Twenty Flight Rock” was an early highlight of a set full of toe tapping, twang fuelled  fun.


 They got a couple people showing off their favourite ’50s moves near the end of the set.


  As the set ended,  an upbeat version of “Honey Hush” proved to be another highlight of  the set.


 The guitarist shredding on Telecaster switched to steel guitar for blues classic “ Wine Spodi -Odi.”
