You can expect plenty of feel-good music made for dancing & good times!

The Minarets

It's 1966 and you're at the Scotch Lounge in Karachi, Pakistan. The lights dim and the
curtain draws... The room is filled with westerners on holiday and veterans of the local
nightlife, whose long, thin cigarettes release plumes of pale smoke, creating a hypnotic
haze over the capacity crowd. Standing before you are THE MINARETS, four striking
gentlemen in matching, bespoke suits, towering over the sightline as their name
suggests. Their freshly coiffed hair and stoic demeanor exudes a thrilling sense of tension
and intrigue. A tale told in jest, or a Pakistani fever dream of swingin' sixties splendor...it
matters not...for THE MINARETS are poised to beseech you with the flash and panache of
their instrumental Rock 'n' Roll prowess.

The Elevator Operators

"...Get ready for a solid dose of mid-60's U.K.-style merseybeat and mod R&B, with a dash of garage rock. Glorious guitar jangle that recalls the early moments of the Kinks in particular, as well as a nod or two to the 60's popisms saturated in the early songs scribed by Roy Wood for the Move! Songs chock full of spot-on lyrics, great vocal harmonies, and top-notch musicianship, presented with a true sense and sound of rock n' roll timelessness." - 13 O'Clock Records
