SOMERVILLE, NJ - Sweet Fanny Adams is a musical group that journeys back to the 1970s, delivering their versions of songs by The James Gang, The Faces, The Rolling Stones and Joe Cocker while adding a mix of original songs in an early 70's rock style.
The group will be on the Somerville Summer Stage Saturday night June 12 or a three-hour show beginning at 6 p.m.
Lead vocalist Jason Jannuzzi, guitarist Troy Bleck and harmony singer Linda King were members of the touring band CB Radio, which supported Blackberry Smoke, the Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker and many other historic bands.
CB radio also performed at some of the biggest music festivals including Mountain Jam and Peach Festival and was also a part of Rock Legends Cruise two years in a row playing with some of their influences including Bad Company, The Doobie Brothers and Foreigner.
The rhythm section of the band is composed of Dave Stoker on drums and Chad Shebey on bass. The final touches of Sweet Fanny Adams are Jes Resch Bleck and Linda King on harmony vocals. The two are affectionately known as The Ooopzee Dayzeez.
