This, from Tim Baskin, local music blogger of record (The Baskin Beat) in the Sedans' home town of Winston Salem, as The Luxuriant Sedans hosted a Saturday night party to celebrate eighteen years of The Garage as a premier music venue, in a music town. The Garage will close New Year's Eve: "Tonight The Garage gets the nod for a second straight night. As they wind down their final season they are bringing in many of our local musical icons, and tonight's lineup includes several of those.The Luxuriant Sedans are a throwback to the glory days of blistering blues rock. Part swampy blues, part driving guitar fireworks, and a whole lotta Wezo. Mike Wesolowski provides most of the vocals with his gritty and powerful pipes, but he also is the spark in the engine with his amped up harmonica hi jinks. His harp is a voice unto itself, and with the cast of rowdy characters he has behind him the shows are always a case study in pure energy. The dual guitar attack of Rob Slater and Gino Grandinetti is a perfect blend of refined fret work and unabashed rock and roll.Bob Tarleton's prowess on the drum kit has been a well known constant around here for decades, and Ed Bumgardner's thundering bass belies its coloration. They play a great mix of classic blues and early rock tunes mixed in with their own originals. Tonight they will be joined by several luminaries from our local scene. The first set will feature some acoustic performances by the one and only Jeffrey Dean Foster, as well as Peter Holsapple, and the Terrys, as in Lee and Susan. In The Sedans' part of the show they will have also have some special guests, such as our own Michael 'B-String' Bennett."
