Biscuits and Honey and The West Nile Ramblers will play at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, as part of Thursday Live! at the Odd Fellows upper hall, 415 Second St. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
The West Nile Ramblers — Alex Roth, guitar, vocals; Andy Lentz, fiddle, vocals; Scotty Prowalsky, stand-up bass; and Bart van der Zeeuw, drums — are a Yolo County-based band that combines influences from Western swing, country and rock into a style they call “Western garage.”
Their shows feature hot fiddle chops, ripping guitar leads, vocal harmonies and a rhythm section that drives their strong, evenly balanced sound home.
Biscuits and Honey is composed of three local musicians who play bluegrass/folk music with close vocal harmonies and acoustic musicianship. Lead guitar player Kurt Roggli has performed in Akimbo!, a world-beat band, as well as reggae and blues bands. Roggli plays both electric and acoustic guitars.
Dianna Craig, who also sings with the doo wop group Frankie and the Fabletones, was one of the female singers with Akimbo! Ron Cowden on upright bass has played everything from jazz to Caribbean to Elvis.
Thursday Live! concerts are on the first Thursday of each month.
