The bluesy, guitar-led rock of ZZ Top resounded around the Duncan Showroom as the Victoria-based band Eliminator came to town on Jan. 5.

Lonnie Glass, who spent many years with the tribute group, Tres Hombres, whose devotion to the music led ZZ Top to sanction their efforts, has relocated to the Island and now is back playing the music he loves.

The trio lack only ZZ Top’s signature long beards.

Showroom owner, Longevity John Falkner, watching the group and thinking ahead, shared during the intermission that he thought Eliminator would make a great Thursday night City Stage act for The 39 Days of July.

So, watch this space for more news on that front.
