Last night at the Melody Inn, a new indie rock outfit made its debut. Jomberfox, a band with influences melding both hippie-jam and indie rock tunes, took the stage early on in the evening. With members from Blue Moon Revue, this group boasts classic rock riffs with a more alternative sounding element thrown into the pot. They used a lap-guitar throughout their performance. This detail added a unique visual and tonal experience. Keeping a groovy tone during their whole set, these guys really cranked up their sonic presence with an unbelievable guitar jam in their final song. This solo came out of left field, and was probably the most memorable moment of the night. With jams like that, Jomberfox is a project to look forward to hearing again.
The Wednesday night regulars, Blue Moon Revue, stepped onto stage following Jomberfox. They whipped out their older classics along with some fresh, new tunes. The Blue Moon Revue fellas almost always seem to be in the midst of creating new material. This is one of the reasons as to why they are such a vital facet of Indianapolis' live music scene. Not only do they consistently progress with their material, but they also stay true to their unmistakeable traditional rock sound. Wednesday nights at the Melody Inn with BMR make for the perfect hump day musical fix.
After BMR came the strong sounds of Kisses for Free. Finishing up the night powerfully, this female led group left the audience's ears entranced. Her vocal depth brought plenty of emotional weight to the stage. With a bluesy, raspy tone, this band left the Melody Inn in a sultry state.
