Boogie down to snarling slide guitars, ballsy, bluesy saxophone lines, thundering rock-solid rhythm and the Bad to the Bone bark of one of blues-rock’s biggest, baddest dogs. Legendary blues-rockers George Thorogood and the Destroyers are Movin’ On Over to the Wolfman Jack Stage prior to a performance from Whiskey Myers, and when they do, you’ll be feelin’ so nice, you’ll be lovey-dovey.
