The Queen Mary welcomes back the popular monthly live music series, Local Band Hangout, on Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m. in The Observation Bar & Art Deco Lounge. Aboard the legendary ship for another authentic Thursday night filled with appetizing food, enticing drinks, and some of the best music Southern California has to offer.
Local Band Hangout continues with performances by Long Beach natives, Tall Walls, MOVE, and Bundy. Tall Walls, influenced by artists such as Buddy Holly, The Ramones, and The Arctic Monkeys brings sun-drenched power pop to Southern California. Winners of Long Beach’s Buskerfest 2015, Tall Walls’ up-tempo, brassy, melodic tunes feature minute attention to detail, social commentary, and declarations of unconditional love. While MOVE, a self-described “musical collaborative”, bring a stylistic variety of Long Beach musical talent that even features special guest songwriters. In addition to their performance at The Queen Mary, MOVE has a monthly residency at Bixby Knolls First Fridays. Bundy’s sound can be described as eclectic, yet bombastic. Influenced by bands like Television, Ought, Parque Courts, and Talking Heads, Bundy strives to tell painful stories through heavy post punk drumming, growling Bass, and searing reverberous guitar.
