Super popular band celebrating 40 years with Varsity concert
This year marks the 40th anniversary of one of Carbondale’s most popular and longest-running bands. Four on the Floor will be celebrating that milestone on Friday, July 29, at the Varsity.
Four on the Floor began as a rockabilly/roots rock band in 1982 and quickly became the most danceable, genre-challenging act in town. The original members included Robbie Stokes on lead guitar, Peyton Blewett on rhythm guitar, Gary Gibula on bass guitar, Kevin Cox on saxophone and Mike Ebersohl on drums.
Stokes, Blewett, and Cox reformed the band in 1985 (with Charles Ryan on bass, Terry Rich on drums) and were voted Best Local Band two years running by The Southern Illinoisan Reader’s Poll. Gibula rejoined the band in 1987, along with drummer Charlie Morrill. The foursome of Stokes, Blewett, Gibula and Morrill is the version of the band that will be performing live at The Varsity.
Please join us for a night of reminiscing and rock ’n’ roll, as we celebrate one of Carbondale’s most influential bands.
The show begins at 7 p.m. Friday, July 29. Doors and the Varsity Bar open at 7. Tickets are $10 and are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but will be available on the night of the show when doors open at 6.
