Spanky’s Clubhouse: Indianapolis Rock and Roll

Spanky’s Clubhouse was voted Indianapolis‘ “Best Local Rock Band” by NUVO Newsweekly in 2005 and 2006.  Playing a vast repertoire of cover and original rock and metal songs, this Indianapolis band plays regularly at Indianapolis music venues such as Krazy St. Grille, Point After, 8 Seconds Saloon, and Clancy’s.

Members of Spanky’s Clubhouse include Jeff Strong, Phil Scott, Matt Howery, and Steve Townsend.  Setlists will typically showcase such classics as “Walk This Way”, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, “Stupify”, and “Welcome to the Jungle” in addition to some brutal originals. The group has played with nationally known acts like Fuel and Breaking Benjamin, showing that Indy has what it takes to make it in the national music scene.

Lead singer Jeff Strong is always sure to please the ladies in the crowd.  Screaming fans await the definite removal of his shirt at some point during the show, yet men are typically impressed by the obvious talent and high energy exhibited by the group. As a matter of fact, Eric Bailey of NUVO states that “Spanky’s Clubhouse is more than a rock band; they are true entertainers.”
