If you have ever attended a Jukebox the Ghost show you would know that they love Queen, and love to cover Queen live. If you haven’t ever seen Jukebox the Ghsot live before WIUX can fill you in from when they came to Indianapolis last winter. Whether it is “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Under Pressure”, or “Somebody to Love” this three piece band will pull out all the stops to do the track the justice it deserves. Jukebox the Ghost just announced that for two shows this fall Jukebox fans can catch Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel and Jesse Kristin perform a full set of Queen covers. According to their facebook page “there’s nothing “guilty” or “ironic” about [their] love for [Queen]. So this Halloween, [they’re] doing a two-set extravaganza.” This means you can catch all of the original Jukebox songs you love, get a little breather, then get a full frontal Queen set.
The only downside for us is that the shows – which they are calling “HalloQUEEN” – are only out east. You can catch these sets in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (October 24th) or in Boston at The Sinclair (October 28th).
For a sneak peak listen below to Jukebox’s live cover of Queen’s “Somebody to Love”.
