Hey folks. Hope the beginnings of summer are inspiring and less damp than you have haplessly become accustomed to. Like you, we have been focusing on retrieving waterlogged items from the yard and seeing if they still work. As well, we have been working on a bunch of new songs and are excited to share them with you, via the various sound systems of some great local venues. Re-harmonized bluegrass classics and a handful of jazz standards are the current focus, which puts us in a position to consider questions regarding how and why traditional music forms are able to maintain themselves. We often situate and register ourselves as a bluegrass band, but, by our own willful admission, we are absolutely not a bluegrass band. One goal that we have is to take old music and make it our own, without sacrificing what we deem essential and modifying things to cater to our own strengths while maintaining the value that was established long before we showed up. Hopefully, our answers to these questions are worth your time and coin and, as such, we would love to see your fancy faces at some upcoming shows.
On June !4, we will be kicking off the night for Jacob Miller and The Bridge City Crooners as they release their new EP A Love Like This. A wonderful and talented band playing original. toe-tapping, early American jazz and ragtime. These guys are absolutely fantastic. Joining us will be an equally excellent band by the name of Well Swung. These folks play straight-up Bob Wills Texas Swing, and very well. We highly recommend not missing this show. Hope to see you all soon.
