Maurice Tani & 77 El Deora, The T-Sisters
Maurice Tani & 77 El Deora
Wry-to-Romantic American Songwriter Comes to St Cyprian's
Americana artist Maurice Tani and his band 77 El Deora featuring guest vocalist Pam Brandon come to St Cyprian's to perform their unique and sophisticated take on American music. The Bay Area-based 6-piece, altcountry/Americana outfit, formed in 2004, will be making their fourth appearance at SF LIVE ARTS' long running concert series.
Tani & 77 El Deora represent the best in Americana: smart without making a fuss about it. The lyrics are worldly but universal. The musical ideas hit home. The playing is as good as you're going to hear this side of Austin. Above all, the band covers a lot of ground, from wistful ballads to hard driving honky-tonk rock, from personal meditations to satirical cultural observations, from electrified twang to down-home acoustic. Once in a while, they even find new shades of meaning in some cover you thought had been long since played out. This band is different. This band is special.
"All in all, possibly the best indie 'Americana' band to come from the Bay Area . . . ever . . . period." - Paul Olguin
OPENING: THE T SISTERS
The T Sisters are a genuine sister singing group based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Their unique yet classic sound invites a range of likenesses: from soulful 60's girl groups to the sirens from the Coen Brothers' film Oh Brother Where Art Thou and the Andrews Sisters.
With their coveted blend, they have lent backing vocals to some of the Bay Area's finest musicians: local bluegrass legend Laurie Lewis, Tom Rozum, Robin Flower & Libby McLaren, Hot Buttered Rum, Melody Walker, Wendy Burch Steel, Eliza Gilkyson, American Nomad, The California Honeydrops and many more.
