A Grand Experiment of Song
Monday, February 18, 2013
7:30pm | Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
Students: $10 select sets with valid student ID
With Nellie McKay, vocals, piano, ukulele; Justin Poindexter, guitar, vocals; Sam Reider, accordion, vocals, Eddie Barbash, saxophone, washboard, vocal.
Don’t let the ukulele and the retro-vibe influence you, not only does McKay play alluring music, there’s often a message. Beneath her light and bubbly exterior, is a depth that has attracted both a major label and a growing dedicated jazz audience. Careening back and forth between three-part harmony-singing and bursts of instrumental improvisation, quintessential American folk ensemble The Amigos Band delivers toe-tapping takes on the American songbook, folk standards, and spicy originals.
