The ongoing tour van project of covering iconic pop tunes continues for Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers as they make their way around Utah. This Madonna classic – yes, it is and you shut up if you don’t think so – shows the gang at their most endearingly sweet, fans of pop culture able to do something fresh with it that’s their own. And apparently, this number helped them with a traffic stop in the Beehive State, too. Thanks, Ms. Ciccone. Your gifts just keep on giving.
Catch Nicki and the Gramblers tonight (10/21) at Sidecar in Park City, UT and tomorrow night and tomorrow night (10/22) at Mystic Hot Springs in Monroe, UT. Find the full calendar of fall Gramblin’ over here.
If you Gramblers are gonna keep this up, the Impound humbly suggests you get around to Starland Vocal Band’s “Afternoon Delight”, Sly & The Family Stone’s “Hot Fun In The Summertime”, Seals & Crofts’ “Diamond Girl”, Extreme’s “More Than Words”, and Barenaked Ladies’ “Brian Wilson”. But just keep these coming whatever tunes you choose. Such a fun snapshot of band life that we’re lucky to share.
