Good literature and good theater generally focus on a character with whom everyone can identify. Often, it’s just an ordinary person, tossed into extraordinary circumstances — the “everyman.” This is the character that inspired Lake Worth, Florida, band The EVERYMEN, who connect with the everyman in the audience not just through their music and performances, but also on a personal level. The individual band members represent a broad spectrum of humanity in their backgrounds and personalities. But The EVERYMEN were born on, let’s say, the wrong side of the tracks. Banjo player and principal songwriter, Capt’n Bobo, struggled with addiction. He was kicked out of his former band, Viva Le Vox, and he went into rehab. It was there thattherootsofTheEVERYMENbeganto grow. Bobo met his future drummer, Jordan, in treatment. They became friends and would jam together while they were patients. When treatment was over, they went separate ways — that is, until Bobo gathered other musicians for The EVERYMEN, and needed a drummer. Bobo contacted Jordan, and to his pleasant surprise, learned that he was not only still off drugs, but also participating in helping others get over addiction. Like the perfect puzzle piece, Jordan filled out the band lineup. When I talked to Capt’n Bobo, I took the opportunity to ask about Lake Worth. Over the past few years, I’ve noticed all these great bands from Lake Worth touring the country. This year alone, Northeast Ohio has seen performances by Lake Worth-based bands Viva Le Vox, Los Bastardos Magnificos and the Darling Sweets. Bobo says Lake Worth is a very small town, small enough for everyone to know one another. No big box stores; it’s all “mom and pop” shops. There are musicians all around because it is inexpensive to live there. All their musical efforts are DIY, but they are supported by good venues and a community that likes to party. It is progressive small town America — in other words, as Bobo puts it, it is an awesome place to live! Along with a few friends, Capt’n Bobo and now operates his own record label, called “Wayward Parade.” The group is releasing its second album, “Beautiful Curse,” with its upcoming tour. From the songs I’ve heard, you can expect an awesome punk rock carnival show of thought-provoking music. They have a sound of their own with instrumentation including banjo, guitar, electric guitar, fiddle, upright bass, accordion, mandolin and drums, with raucous vocals and powerful choruses. It’s unique roots music with lots of passion and love, changing the world within oneself and those things you fear. On Wednesday, Aug. 15, the band will perform at the Buzzbin Art & Music Shop to have a good old home cooked hoedown with local dirty bluegrass troubadours, The Misery Jackals. Also performing are Canton’s own funny punk-pop, indie, folk music duo of little sisters (and I mean young, I am twice as old as these girls’ ages combined) ShiSho! Last, but not least, is Drew Kelly from Scranton, Pa., (He’s kinda like Bob Dylan, except he can sing!) Come dance off dinner to this high caliber show at the Buzzbin Shop on Aug. 15, starting at 8 p.m.
