Fowler's Mustache

When: Wed., Oct. 27 2010

Named after Charleston weatherman Rob Fowler’s legendary facial hair (it’s still sorely missed by loyal fans), local groove-rock combo Fowler’s Mustache have been diligently honing its sound, expanding its setlist of originals, and tightening an eclectic roster of oddball covers. Singer/guitarists Thomas McElwee and Matt Stanley do their thing with solid backing from bandmates Nick Collins (guitar), Chris Richter (bass), and John Tankersley (drums). The quintet celebrate the release of a debut collection this week. Simply titled The Album, the band recorded the 10 songs in bits and pieces over the last year at East Coast Party Band keyboardist Dave Fuller’s home studio. “We’re calling it that because we thought it was a great representation of Fowler’s Mustache’s first year,” says McElwee. “It’s sort of a soundtrack to our first year as a band. It’s got songs ranging from straight blues-rock to slower funk, and even some more acoustic-driven tunes.” Free copies of The Album will be available to anyone who shows up and pays the cover charge. “We just want the Pour House to be a big party — no gimmicks or anything,” says McElwee. “Just a night for us and everyone in attendance to have a great time and get their faces rocked off.” —T.
