Dear family, friends and lovers of Mat Arluck,
The time has come for us to reunite and bask in the joy and remembrance of Mat, aka Conrad Shore III, aka Teri Tenderchunk, aka Sepp Blatter, and countless other aliases that'll make you laugh until you wet your pants. In 2018, we're upping our Arluck Time to two coasts – the Third Coast (Chicago, on Feb. 3) and the Left Coast (San Jose on Feb. 10). It's a big Mat Birthday sandwich! There will be rock. There will be rum. And there will be you, dere guy. Join us, whydontcha?
A revolving door set with musicians of Mat's bands and other friends playing the songs that remind us of him. Features members of Sweet Cobra, Deminer/Crash Course, Party Downers, Full On, Haymarket Riot, Lynyrd's Innards, Cooler by the Lake and other special guests.
Combine tight musicianship with a loose cannon and you get Cooler by the Lake. With a two-guitar attack, rhythm section, keys, flute and sax, a dedicated back up singer and raucous singer Rory Lake at the helm, Cooler by the Lake has conquered rock clubs all over the Midwest for the last 15 years. It’s more than music; it’s an intense rock experience. That’s why their shaken cocktail of classic rock, psych, prog and punk appeals to all fans of rock, especially when served by wildly charismatic Rory Lake. Due to their unique versatility and amplified entertainment factor, Cooler by the Lake has squeezed on stages with rock legends Molly Hatchet, The Fixx, Asia, and Adam Ant as well as punk and indie acts Sean & Zander, Drag the River, Nashville Pussy, Cherry Valence, Electric Frankenstein, Danko Jones, and Apocalypse Hoboken. Cooler by the Lake has also performed during a live simulcast of a bacon eating contest on ABC’s, The Jimmy Kimmel Show.
