Come on over and join the party as the Waybacks bring down the house! Self-described purveyors of "acoustic mayhem," the Waybacks—guitarist James Nash, drummer Chuck Hamilton, bass player Joe Kyle Jr., and fiddler and mandolinist Warren Hood—are a quartet of virtuosos with a wide array of Americana idioms at their fingertips. Always known for putting their own irreverent stamp on multiple genres, from newgrass to alt-country, the band has recently added touches of Memphis soul, honky-tonk, and Parisian swing to their repertoire. In air-tight arrangements that swing with fervor and intensity, they transcend genre altogether, conjuring up the wild, unpredictable musical landscapes that have put them at the forefront of New American acoustic music.

If you've never seen these folks play before (or even if you have), prepare to find yourself charmed, exhilarated, and drop-jawed, all at the same time! Featuring original tunes and vintage gems, including selections from their most recent studio CD, Loaded(Compass).

Absinth Quintet opens tonight's show with their own unique brand of high-energy string band music.
