Randy Sabien and the Fiddlehead Band
In the early 1930s, the now legendary Bob Wills created what he called a "Texas fiddle band." It featured Wills and others on fiddles in addition to just about any other instrument. The band played almost any style of music: blues, country, Mexican, polka, ragtime, swing, cowboy songs, and of course, fiddle tunes. If it made people dance, they played it.

Sabien, a jazz violinist, has tapped into that tradition by including three fiddles in his Fiddlehead Band, featuring drums, bass, guitar, and keyboard rhythm section. With the advantage of 80 years of musical history to draw upon, Sabien describes his sound as "Bob Wills meets Art Blakey (be-bop) meets the Allman Brothers (blues rock)."  You can expect to hear classic Western swing tunes such as "Maiden's Prayer," an instrumental version of a Grateful Dead song, "Stella Blue," or a swinging Duke Ellington tune, "Mr. Gentle and Mr. Cool." Just as Will's Texas Playboys, Sabien's band will play just about any style that makes people dance, or at least tap their toes.

The Chicago Tribune praises Sabien, "Rather than simply embellish a tune, he reconceives it, building and developing intriguing new musical motifs along the way . . . his playing couldn't help but bring a smile to virtually every face in the room."
