Mick Rhodes & the Hard Eight at the OJP Music Lounge
Mick Rhodes & the Hard Eight hail from the arid desert region east of Los Angeles, just close enough to the city to venture in and take what they need from the town of tinsel, leave the rest behind, and return to their outlying creative hub to plot their next record or tour.
Thriving outside the mainstream for has helped MR8 develop into one of the country’s best live bands. Battling it out independently, the group has released two records, “’Til I am Dust,” and “Paradise City,” both on Hot Tramp Records. “Paradise City,” received raves for its eclectic take on Americana, country, soul, blues and rock, with the single “Married Girls” appearing on several critics’ song-of-the-year lists.
The OJP Music Lounge opens 1 hour before each performance for small plates, cocktails, wine and craft beer. Please order your main food items with your ticket to make sure what you want is waiting for you when you arrive!
