The Michael Clark Band – featuring Tracy Clark – will be rocking Cogan’s on Jan. 26 beginning at 8pm.
Often cited as one of the region’s funkiest bands, you’ll be treated to a night of Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Etta James, Prince, Chicago, Edgar Winter and so much more. There are usually no set-in-stone set-lists. Instead, the band generally starts the show with an R&B instrumental before Tracy takes the stage – and the room – by storm. You’ll enjoy some renditions of classic favorites mixed with Michael Clark Band original tunes, all performed in the band’s fun and funky style.
The Michael Clark Band, founded in 1991, are two-time winners of MEONA’s “Best Local Blues Band”, and 2008 winners of River City Blues Society’s “Battle of the Bands” contest. They’ve performed at events all across the country including Bourbon Street in New Orleans at the Blues Club.

Watch Michael Clark absolutely SHRED his guitar:
One Culture has been around since 2013 sharing their progressive East Coast reggae talents all across Hampton Roads. They released their debut album “Molly Cooper” in 2017 and recently followed it up with a smooth acoustic version of the title track. In 2018, they released an official video for their song “North End.”
One Culture’s inspiration comes from a blend of both new and vintage reggae styles and root rock. Band members include Kurt Jansohn – Lead Guitar/Vocals/Producer, Connor Jansohn – Bass/Vocals, Russell (Rusty) Nygaard – Drums, and Roland Ockert – Alto/Tenor Saxophone. For smaller venues and more intimate performances, the band can perform as a trio. You’ve got to catch the sweet reggae vibe of this hardworking local band! See them Jan. 26 at Paul’s Deli
