THE SWEETBACK SISTERS with special guests JENEE HALSTEAD and KRISTIN ANDREASSEN
THE SWEETBACK SISTERS (Brooklyn NY)
with very special guests
$10 advance and $10 at the door
The Sweetback Sisters are a honky-tonk band from Brooklyn. They sing early-country classics and new, soon-to-be country hits in sweet, girl-on-girl harmony ... joined tonight by Kristin Andreassen of Sometymes Why and Boston's own Jenee Halstead
The rollicking country swing of the Sweetback Sisters is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. Their charismatic charm harkens back to the golden era of both the silver screen cowgirl and the ersatz cowboy stars of local UHF TV kiddie shows. That whimsical exterior is wrapped around a core of deeply felt love for traditional country music styles and a palpable joy in playing and singing together. Like their pseudo-sister role models, the Davis Sisters, the Sweetback Sisters sing country songs in close, surrogate-sister harmony and of course their signature matching dresses. Their repertoire combines several of the Sisters' passions -- country music from before they were born and new interpretations of those traditions -- to create a fresh take on what it means to be country.
