Strawberry jams: See two nights of music in town this weekend

What better way to wind down from a long day at the Strawberry Festival than to rock out at the Red Bike?

On both Friday and Saturday nights, there will be big nights of music at the local watering hole and sushi spot.

At 9 p.m. Friday, the local blues band One More Mile will take the stage. It’s a band fronted by guitarists Jason Lollar, Tommy Bean and harmonica player Mike Nichols.  They’ll be joined by David Solonen on bass and Sammy Veatch on drums.

Lollar is known throughout the world for his handmade, electric guitar pickups — a business that has attracted such clients as Keith Richards, John Fogerty, Steve Miller, Jeff Tweedy, Stevie Wonder and Bill Frisell.

Islander Phil Royal will open the show.

At 9 p.m. on Saturday, the band Rewind will appear at the Bike to take Islanders back to the glory days of cassette tapes, asymmetrical haircuts, day-glo colors and parachute pants, with covers of songs by such 80s giants as Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, The Go-Gos, Duran Duran, The Police and The Cars.

The band played at the Bike last year during the Strawberry Festival, and the crowd spilled out of the bar to dance in the street.

Admission to shows on both nights is $5.  The shows are for all ages until 11 p.m. After that, listeners will need to be 21 or older, with identification.
