Hackensaw Boys w/ The Window Panes
SATURDAY, AUGUST 2
DOORS: 7pm | SHOW: 8pm
With feet firmly planted in the old-time song tradition, hands soiled by the dirt of rock n' roll and eyes fixed steadily on the future of real country music, the Hackensaw Boys are among the most exciting groups charting new territory in today's diverse Americana music scene.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Everybody sings a bit of lead, everybody sings a bit of harmony and most members know when to shut up. Instrumentation includes banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, upright bass, charismo (a home-made tin can contraption) and the occasional trap kit.
WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?
In the beginning they all lived in Charlottesville, VA, but now the members are spread throughout Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Louisana. For more than a decade, however, they've come together to tour the United States, Europe and the U.K. and to record several critically acclaimed albums.
The Hackensaws have toured with a bevy of diverse acts that were quick to embrace the group's sound and songcraft, including: The Flaming Lips, Cracker, Modest Mouse, Camper Van Beethoven, The Detroit Cobras, Cake, Railroad Earth, Cheap Trick and De La Soul.
In 2003, the Hackensaw Boys were honored to serve as Charlie Louvin's backing band on that Country Music Hall of Fame member's nationwide tour.
WHO ARE THEY?
The group's lineup includes:
Ferd Moyse (strings and horsehair)
Jimmy Stelling (thumb picks)
Brian Gorby (traps and sticks)
David Sickmen (strings and improvised straps)
THE WINDOW PANES
The Window Panes are more than just an acoustic rock/jam band from Winchester, Virginia. They are passionate musicians, who have honed their craft and enjoy nothing more than sharing their talents live, on stage. The band members write and compose a substantial portion of the music they perform; often times reflecting on personal experiences that have touched their lives. Their personal connection to the music translates into a solid performance with every song; invigorating, enveloping, and embracing their audience.
Members of The Window Panes also share a deep love of Americana/Folk Rock/Jam Band forms of music. Influences on the band, which can often be heard throughout their performances include: the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Keller Williams, Indecision, the Rolling Stones, and many others. While the band enthusiastically enjoys covering such notable artists, they are far from simply being considered a cover band. Originally penned tunes are what truly drives their creative appetite.
