The Meerkat Mobsters

 

When the pumped up, high-rockin, rockabilly trio The Meerkat Mobsters, featuring Springfield resident Mark Mills (guitar, vocals), Ray Biagioni (drums) from Oglesby and Rick Topolski (stand-up bassist) from Streator, hits town for a show in support of Toys for Tots, expect a wild ride from this blistering rock ‘n’ roll band. Mark released an excellent solo album not so long ago, but before that, he lived in northern Illinois and worked with this group, and they caused a royal ruckus making melodious music mayhem wherever they roamed. Check out the video from Mark’s American Man CD to get a look, and listen to the band by searching YouTube for the song “Something to Do.” This first annual event, hosted by Smurf and Doc at the G & C, kicks off around 3 with the music beginning around 6 and the good times lasting all day and into the night. Please bring an unwrapped, new toy to donate to the cause of making someone’s Christmas a better one.
