10 Year Anniversary Extravaganza! Nov 19 at Verdi Club
Holy mackerel, folks, the band has turned 10 years old this fall! My oh my, and whaddya know, our fearless upright bassist Eric Reedy is also celebrating a major milestone with his 50th birthday, so we have put together a big ol’ birthday bash to celebrate on November 19th at the Verdi Club here in our hometown of San Francisco.
We’ve been earnestly plugging away at this hillbilly swing music for the past ten years, and that effort has taken us up and down the West Coast, to the East Coast, back to Greg’s stomping grounds in the Midwest, to Canada to play the Red Hot & Blue festival, to Spain to play at the Screamin’ festival, to Viva Las Vegas numerous times, to play the inaugural Nashville Boogie, to Beck Rustic’s terrific New England Shakeup Festival, and last year to Austin when we were nominated for an Ameripolitan Artist Music Award. We have released two full length albums and a 6-song EP, put out a couple of releases on vinyl, made a music video, and are about to release a limited edition picture sleeve 7″ single in commemoration of this 10 year anniversary at our birthday bash. Joining us on stage at the show will be some old friends who have been on the B-Star bandstand over the years, and we will be reviving some of those old tunes that we have almost (but not quite) forgotten, so it’s sure to be a site to see and hear….
Thanks to everyone that has come out to see us over the years, bought our records, voted or nominated us, and continues to support traditional roots music here in the Bay Area and beyond, and we hope to see you on November 19th!
