On Thursday, November 30, the Yardvarks will perform at the Handwerker Gallery. The Yardvarks, a quirky folky semi-acoustic quartet featuring Tom Farrell, Eric Ott, John Simon, and Ken Zesserson, specialize in heartfelt rock and roll with three-part vocal arrangements of tunes by the likes of Elvis Costello, Talking Heads, Joni Mitchell and their predecessors such as the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. We must warn you that one Neal Diamond tune has somehow snuck into their repertoire as well. The Yardvarks will perform from 7:00-9:00 pm, with invitations to stump the band with requests from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s during the second half of the show. Audience members will also be welcome to come up and sing with the band.
