Description [edit]
There's nothing incredibly sexy about Shank Hall. It's not the biggest music venue in the city (but its capacity of 300 is great for that up-close and personal concert feeling), but it is one of the best places to see a show. No bright lights and glitter on the outside of this place, but Shank Hall always pulls in great national acts, as well as Milwaukee regulars like Pat McCurdy and Paul Cebar.

Anthony Gomes Live @ Shank Hall

Anthony Gomes, #1 Billboard Blues Artist, will be bringing his high energy blues rock show to Shank Hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Friday, December 1 at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $15. Anthony Gomes has been creating virtuosic, burning blues since his recorded debut in 1998. 12 releases and numerous awards and ecstatic accolades later, his latest album, Electric Field Holler, crackles with bare wire passion. The aptly-named, riff-laden Electric Field Holler has received highly acclaimed recognition; reaching #1 on both Roots Music Report's Blues Rock Chart and ReverbNationís Global Blues Chart as well as earning several nominations for Blues Rock Album of the Year. Anthony, joined by bassist Carlton Armstrong and drummer Freddy Spencer Jr., will be showcasing songs from his latest release as well as performing fan favorites from past albums. †Gomes sings and plays with integrity and deeply felt emotion oblivious to fortune and fashion. The resulting music is a blazing cathartic experience radiating therapeutic heat for body and soul.
