IPR's Studio One team is returning to the Basement Venue of the Des Moines Social Club on Thursday, January 7th, for our first live broadcast of 2016. This time, host Mark Simmet and the Studio One team welcome Jim Viner!
Drummer/composer Jim Viner is one of the most prolific musicians in Iowa. Best known these days as the drummer for Brother Trucker, he's been a member of The Diplomats of Solid Sound, and he's worked with Pieta Brown and Kevin Gordon, among countless others. Now, he's also leading Jim Viner's Incredible B3 Band, and just released the album COMANGO! The new band carries on the tradition of Booker T. & the M.G.'s, The Meters and other organ-driven groups.
IPR's Mark Simmet will be on hand to spin your daily soundtrack starting at 7 o'clock. As always, the show is free and open to the public. We hope to see you at the Basement Venue of the Des Moines Social Club this Thursday, January 7th! And mark your calendars for February 4th, when we'll be joined by The Nadas!
