Ekoostik Hookah NYE Bash with Aliver Hall/Walking in Circles/Slap N Tickle/Whitechapel Jack

When: Thu., Dec. 31, 6 p.m. 2015

The grandfathers of Ohio’s expansive jam band scene — culturally and musically — have always maintained close ties to the Cleveland area. From 1991’s Under Full Sail to this year’s sweetly groovin’ Brij, Ekoostik Hookah have kept their fire burning across time. Check out “Whiskey Woman” for a fine example of the hookah-laden chops still hooked around each of the band’s compositional outings. Given the band’s personal history, rife with small shows and Hookahville festivals alike, every chance to be a part of the fun is a necessary diversion from life out there. The band isn’t working on a new studio album but will likely play a few new songs at tonight's special New Year's Eve show. (Sandy)
