City Slang: Jackie Stahl and the White Russians CD release show



New Detroit band Jackie Stahl & the White Russians, a bit of a local supergroup featuring members of Bixy Lutz and the Muggs as well as veteran musical Matthew Stahl and uber-bassist Paul Randolph, will play a CD release show at the Elizabeth Theater, upstairs at the Park Bar, on Saturday, August 23.

They say, “This new Detroit band is made up of some of the hardest working musicians in the city who got together to back musician Matthew Stahl on his new musical endeavor. The band will be releasing their debut album, "Jackie does Love" with a concert at The Elizabeth Theater. Opening the show is the one-man band, Man Inc. at 10pm, The White Russians take the stage at 11pm to perform their "Dirty Americana" music, and Funky D recording artists The Rumpshakers close out the night with their funky blues starting at midnight.”

“Jackie Stahl & The White Russians is the latest project of veteran musician Matthew Stahl whose vast work includes playing drums in the bands The Blue Collar Boys, Catfish Mafia, Bixy Lutz, and Jennifer Westwood & The Waycross Georgia Farmboys just to name a few. After learning to play the piano he began writing and recording songs in his home studio. He assembled a band of his colleagues; guitarist Greg Hanson (Bixy Lutz), guitarist Niko Eklund (The High Balls), bassist Paul Randolph (Jazzanova), and drummer Todd Glass of The Muggs join him on his new musical journey.”
