Attention Hannon fans
The key to a successful club is diversification. Take The Boardwalk’s upcoming calendar. Hardcore metal and nu-metal helped rejuvenate the venue during its leaner years, but these days, a balance of different genres is bringing attendance numbers up. More importantly, there’s been a continued effort to bring back the musicians who helped put the club on the map almost two decades ago. Friday night features the Frank Hannon Band, with the guitar wizard from Tesla and Robbie Furiosi, one of this town’s most underrated drummers. If you like extended solos, classic rock and a little self-gratification, the band delivers one hell of a show. Also on the bill are locals Slight of Hand and Larisa Bryski. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door, and the show starts promptly at 8:30 p.m. The Boardwalk is located at 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale. All ages are welcome.
