An explosion of catastrophe named Chainbreak will walk you down a memory-lane paved with five-plus decades of nostalgia when it returns to The Green Stinger Sports Bar and Grill tonight.

Chainbreak, based in Dover, performs a gamut of genres including modern, classic, Southern, and progressive rock, alternative, grunge, pop, blues, a little bit of funk, punk, R&B and country, just to keep you guessing. The core of the music is '70s, and '90s to present, with a touch of '60s and '80s sprinkled in.

If you're feeling a little uptight, Chainbreak will definitely help you to get "off the chain" tonight.
