Here’s a video of us (joined by special guest Stannita Mason) playing at RiverMUSIC the other weekend. The two songs are “Whaddya Want?” and “All I Want to Do is to Love You,” both covers – learned from the Robins and the Equals, respectively. Enjoy!
We are bringing our hero Baby Gramps to Asheville next week. We have set up four distinct opportunities for you to see him perform:
Friday, June 8, 7 pm – The ArToREtuM in Candler
Saturday, June 9, 8 pm – Static Age on Lexington Ave.
with the Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks
Sunday, June 10, 7 pm & 9 pm – On the LaZoom Bus
Tuesday, June 12, 9 pm – Jack of the Wood with Mad Tea!
Seattle’s one and only Baby Gramps is a performer with a style so distinctive you’ll never forget it. He’s been called “The Salvadore Dali of Folk Music.” He plays acoustic antique resonator National Steel guitars, and sings his own unique arrangements of rags, jazz, & blues songs from the 20′s & 30′s, folksongs, and many originals with wordplay, humor, and throat singing. Don’t miss a chance to see him, Asheville!
We’ll be joining our friend Secret Agent 23 Skidoo this Sunday at 2 pm at the Orange Peel in Asheville for the CD release party of his new record, “Make Believers.” We’re on two tracks of the album, which is terrific.
Here are a few moments of the end of our set at ZaPow! Krekel had just broken a string, but that didn’t stop him or the dancers.
It’s the Solstice! Check out our new video! I wrote the song, and we recorded it in our house. Jon Reid came over and laid down some keys and tambourine. Seva mastered it. I shot the footage, and then Krekel and I edited the video as a team. Whew! We are happy to share it. – AmiPssst – you can pay what you want to download the song!
Well, whaddya know – Mad Tea Party got #2 in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC poll in the “Fragglepop” category, with #1 being “What the hell is Fragglepop?” Of course we don’t know what Fragglepop is either. A very suiting win for a band that don’t fit in, as it were. Thanks to all ya’ll who voted for us. We love you more than you could know. xoxo
