What better way to ease into Christmas than to spend a frosty afternoon listening to the Rizdales and friends at the small and cosey Graffiti’s Bar & Grill. The festivities were kicked off by Ancient Chinese Secret, featuring ex-Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet guitarist Brian Connelly. Their amazing surf instrumental covers got everyone tapping their feet and dancing in their chairs. Brian is accompanied by Rob Clarke (bass) and Mark Duff (drums) from the Rizdales. After giving away free candy and chips, the rest of the Rizdales — Tara Dunphy (fiddle, vocals), Tom Dunphy (guitar, vocals) and Brad Keogan (guitar) — hit the stage and belted out their version of old time country.
