The TWANGbusters @ Cantina La Mexicana
Twangbusters bust into Somerville, bringing their danceable blend of rootsy rhythms and soulful blues, infused with twang.No cover. Though new to the music scene, the Twangbusters are a quartet of well-known roots musicians recently named as a band to watch in Worcester Magazine's "Notes on the Rise". With a voice that's been described as "Patsy Cline meets Bessie Smith", the band features dynamo Paula Bradley (Girl Howdy, Uncle Earl) on piano, ukulele and vocals, Peter "Dr. Z" Zarkadas (Sarah Levecque) on electric guitar, Brian Rost (Tarbox Ramblers) on upright bass, and Texas dancehall veteran drummer "Wild Bill" Nadeau (Junior Brown, The Derailers). The Twangbusters deftly mix their passion for American roots music into a musical cocktail of boogie, blues and hillbilly bop - you'll be shaken and stirred! www.reverbnation.com/twangbusters.
