Chelsea Players hosts surf music by The Clams

Published May 09. 2013 4:00AM

Maybe it's the summer spirit that inspired them? Or maybe it was just the love of good music?

Whatever the case, Chelsea Players is bringing in surf band The Clams Saturday for a Norwich music series that has previously tended to lean toward acoustic singer/songwriters. (Think Tom Russell, Greg Trooper and Dayna Kurtz.)

The Clams may be based in central Connecticut, but their heart is at the shore. Their 1960s-style surf music has brought them to gigs at such entertainingly titled places as Otto's Shrunken Head in Manhattan, and the Yarmouth Clam Festival and Clamapalooza, both in Maine.

The Clams - which consists of Dano Clam on guitar, Deep C Clam on bass, and drummer Clammy Davis Jr. - will be accompanied Saturday by the Nouveaux Pony Banditos Go Go Dancers.

By the way, Chelsea Players, which bills itself as Eastern Connecticut's longest continuously operating community theater group, has been hosting concerts as part of its coffeehouse series for the past eight years.
