WLOY Coffeehouse 10/1/15: Swampcandy
October 1st, 2015 by Allison Langley
It’s the 1st WLOY late night event of October! We have the amazing Swampcandy playing our WLOY coffeehouse series this Thursday. Not only is it FREE but also we’ll be providing delicious snacks AND coffee.
Swamp candy is Ruben Dobbs on guitar and Joey Mitchell on the bass. They are described as a bluesy duo. Ruben Dobb’s, a Maryland farm boy, is Swampcandy’s lead vocalist and guitarist. He has more talent in his fingers alone than I could I possibly imagine. His voice is raw, a little rough, deep, and very real. Dobbs sings his bluesy lyrics with conviction and passion. Joey Mitchell is quite the instrumental talent, maneuvering through all genres and filling the gaps of this two-person band on bass. These two are able to create music that sounds like a fully fitted band is playing along side them.
Do not miss out on this opportunity to see this dope band perform! Check out some videos and their website to get acquainted with them if you’re not already huge fans! Swampcandy
Also, at the show we will be selling raffle tickets for WLOY’s, College Radio Day give away — a turntable with 8 records (including 3 from local label Friends Records) and a $30 gift certificate to Sound Garden in Fells Point – a pretty sweet prize, if we do say so ourselves! Hope to see you there this Thursday October 2nd, buying raffle tickets, sipping on coffee and enjoying the sweet, sweet Swampcandy Tunes.
