www.asylumstreetspankers.com Anyone ever seen this group? I caught them at Bourbon Street in New Port Richey, Fl. this Saturday night, and was blown away. Completely. I think they were the best band i've ever seen in that size of venue, and easily in the top 5 of all bands i've ever seen live. I'd never even heard of them, this chick bought tix and offered me a freebie, and its been one of the most memorable shows ever. For those not in the know, they're a 7 piece all-acoustic group out of Austin, Tx, who play somewhere between country/jump blues/bluegrass/rock/rockabilly etc. (americana?). While it appears they're all multi-instrumentalists ('cept the drummer and bass player, they stuck to their respective instruments all night) it was mostly a banjo player, guitar/dobro-ist, violinist, fellow w/ a washboard and harmonica, and the female singer, who switched from guitar to banjo to mandolin to ukelele to bowing an old saw. And, she had the most amazingly beautiful voice i think i've ever heard live. They could all sing, but dang! she had pipes. Anyways, enough gushing. Check them out if they roll through a town near you. You won't regret it.
