Indie rock meets classic rock for Mudsharks 3 concert in Chilliwack

The local band will be playing both original hits and cover songs at free concert at Corky’s

Local band The Mudsharks 3 will be performing live at Corky’s Irish Pub this Friday offering up lots of original hits, plus some cover songs.

They play “indie rock/rock’n’roll with a classic rock flavour,” says drummer Doug Neufeld.

The Mudsharks 3 consists of Neufeld (drums, vocals), Damien O’Brien on guitar and vocals, and Ron Johnson on bass and vocals.

The band released its first CD Mastication in 2006 and they have been churning out music in a strictly DIY-style ever since.

The trio’s bread-and-butter is blending genres and styles into a unique cocktail of hooky, memorable tunes that are reminiscent of classic rock, but new and current simultaneously.

The Horse You Rode In On was the band’s sophomore release, and again, The Mudsharks 3 showed a penchant for genre-jumping and defying classification. The following years saw the release of Squeeze It, the band’s third CD, and fourth album Asadachi.

A journalist once described their music as Primus and Alan Jackson put in a blender with a quart of WD/40. In the last year, a couple of six-song EPs — Behind The Green Barn and Champagne Afternoon — continued the band’s non-stop production of new music.

The Mudsharks 3 have gained a reputation for high-energy live shows (a barn dance on acid is how one fan put it).

They perform live at 9 p.m. at Corky’s Irish Pub on Friday, July 26. No cover charge.
