Tallahassee with Dr. Jones and the Shiners
Our "Indie Winter" mini-series wraps up with two excellent bands from Boston and Providence. The New England-based roots rock band, Tallahassee, takes it's name from a Native American word meaning, "old town." Tallahassee strives to pioneer uncharted sonic territory, harnessing diverse influences ranging from indie to classic rock, folk and blues all filtered through bandmembers' diverse backgrounds in professional football, fine art and classical music.
Tallahassee's latest effort, Old Ways, draws inspiration from theband's dynamic and energetic live shows. Over a year-and-a-half in the making, Old Ways showcases a broader sonic palette as well as the most adventurous songs the band has ever written.
Jealous Hands, Tallahassee's 2011 debut album, garnered attention from taste-making blogs (Urban Outfitters, My Old Kentucky Blog, Daytrotter, The Deli) as well as NPR and college radio alike.
Dr. Jones and the Shiners is a providence RI "supergroup" fronted by Kate Jones (of The Sugar Honey Iced Tea) on lead vocals and ukelele and backed by Nick Carr and Benny Tilchin (of The Mighty Good Boys) on drums and guitar, and Ollie Williams (of Smith & Weeden) on bass. The boys sing a little too.They play mostly original music with a folky, droney, psychedelic, grungy, country, soul fusion kind of sound, but they just call it jazz. Music is their prescription.
Don't miss this show.
