The accolades are plentiful, the resume, bountiful. From Jazzfest Berlin to the Grand Ole Opry to "The Simpsons," Joey and Johnny Spampinato have lived an interesting career as members of the legendary roots band NRBQ. As The Spampinato Brothers, they continue to shoehorn every type of roots music into a cacophonous blast of bar room boogie. They also have the honor as being the loudest, most relentless band to play the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Get ready to dance...and duck.
The Spampinato Brothers perform Friday, November 8, 9:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $10, abilenebarandlounge.com.
