Get to Know Los Angeles Wedding Band The Blind Blakes
Los Angeles-based retro jazz music archivists, The Blind Blakes, serve up a dangerous, thrilling and sultry musical cocktail party.
The Blind Blakes blend jazz, swing and blues harmoniously; they’re a group of music archivists. Find yourself stopping for drinks at the sexy bordellos of New Orleans in the early twentieth century, the greasy juke joints of Chicago, the voodoo gambler riverboats of Mississippi, the smoky saloons of jazzy Harlem and Parisian gypsy jazz hot clubs at last call.
The Blind Blakes blend film noir soundtracks, big top circus music, Havana bar serenades and gypsy campfire fiddle with Harry Smith’s Anthology of folk music.
Get to Know Los Angeles Wedding Band The Devil’s Box
The Devil’s Box supplies a revisionist-western take on fiddle tunes from around the world using energetic and eclectic music rooted in the styles of bluegrass and folk.
The Devil’s Box creates a cinematic blend of bluegrass, country and folk that suggests a higher than average pedigree. Two-beat Cajun stomps, break-neck bluegrass, haunting gypsy laments and cranked out Celtic jigs all get twisted, bent and melted down to become burning masses of fiddle heat.
Distilling the essence of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and Bob Wills into a heady spirit of moaning fiddle, burbling banjo, dandelion mandolins and high-lonesome harmonies, Chris Murphy’s raging fiddle and lead vocals drive The Devil’s Box. Lovers of folk, rock, jazz and exciting lively music will all appreciate The Devil’s Box. They appear with anywhere from two to six musicians.
