The Colonel Reports to Proud Larry's Tonight

Ok. So it's a crummy, rainy night in the Ditch. But a fantastic show at Larry's. Col. Bruce Hampton and The Quark Alliance arrive in town. Nothing like good music and cold beer to make you feel good.

Col. Bruce Hampton has been making music since he formed his first band in 1963. Col. Bruce has been in constant motion ever since leaving a trail of memorable live performances with his many bands, including The Late Bronze Age and Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit.

Along the way he appeared in the movie "Sling Blade" as the poet and band manager Morris and starred in Mike Gordon's cult classic "Outside Out" as a mystical guitar 'out'structor.

Since 2006, The Colonel has been playing a unique blend of blues and jazz with his band Col. Bruce & The Quark Alliance, featuring Kris Dale (bass), Perry Osborn (guitar) and Duane Trucks (drums).

Still rolling down the road, Col. Bruce continues his quest for the tonal center at each exit #6
