After a two month sizzling summer break, our 3rd Saturday Dances are back! But guess what? Both the Foot Fellas are out of town, so Kelly asked Tom Sauber to put together a band and we present…The L.A. Twang Gang! Smokin’ twin fiddles of Tom Sauber and Patti Wolfe; from Utah, Tom Carter on banjo; myself K.Boogie on guitar; Tom’s brother Mike Sauber on the ole upright and, hopefully, Erin Schneider on the accordion. Come shake your tail feathers until they fall off! It’s first day of Autumn afterall!
Here’s hoping your holiday wishes came true and that 2014 finds you off and running doing all the fine things you love. We hope to see you a week from Saturday at the American Legion Hall for a square dance! Meet your neighbors, bring your best pal and do si do with style! Susan Michaels calls the dance.
Hiya. Kelly, here. Way back when I first started playing old time music on the ole doghouse I got to jam with the fellas in this band when they were on their way to tour Ireland as the all-guy five piece. I had no idea about the music at all. I just knew playing music all night until your fingers bled was probably the most fun I ever had and Sammy and Caleb were the masters of gettin’ down to that business. Made me a fan for life and well, for at least ten years now I just love to hear them sing and play. With this lineup with Nadine and Reeb all that continues with the sweeter tones the ladies bring but the drive also digs in just as deep and dancey. And to cut it short, it’s a complete thrill to share the bill with them. If you’re a Foot fan and like the old time tunes that are swingin’ around town you HAVE TO COME TO THIS GIG. FOGHORN STRINGBAND KICKS ASS. word.
We played a fun summer bbq in Angelino Heights earlier this month and our host, Mathieu Young’s friend Chris-Ian Garcia took these gorgeous photos!
Found this nice little recording of Kelly and Ben from 2008. Recorded on the island of Aspo in S.E. Sweden, in the tack house of an old farm. We’ll Outshine the Sun mp3
