October 24, Brave Combo.
Brave Combo is a polka/rock/worldbeat band based in Denton, Texas. Founded in 1979 by guiltarist/keyboardist/accordionist Carl Finch, they have been a prominent fixture in the Texas music scene for more than twenty-five years. Their music, both originals and covers, incorporates a number of dance styles, mostly polka, but also some Latin American and Caribbean.
As part of their perceived artistic mission to expand the musical tastes of their listeners, they have often played and recorded covers of well-known songs in a style radically different from the original versions. Examples include polka versions of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" and The Doors' "People are Strange"as a cha-cha. While their records may have a sense of humor, they are played straight and not usually considered joke or novelty records.
Concerts are second and fourth Thursdays from 7 - 8 p.m., except as noted during Unique Week, April 8-11, when special concerts are from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m, and Celebrate ROANOKE, October 12!
