“The perfect balance of sass, sincerity and swing," (The Boston Globe) this Brooklyn-based band creates a unique brand of Americana infused with lovely hints of jazz and ragtime. Centered around the charismatic vocal interplay of Emily Miller and Zara Bode and backed by powerhouse musicians, the band performs a mix of infectious originals and unexpected interpretations ranging from George Jones to Gram Parsons. One listen to these “Americana darlings with a roadhouse edge” (NPR) is all you’ll need to become fans of this brilliantly sweet style.

No tickets needed. RSVP to receive a reminder email the day of the concert!
