Sour Mash Hug Band:
A cabaret jazz band that combines virtuosic gypsy violin with 1920s hot jazz, swing, and Yiddish song, the Sour Mash Hug Band evokes an era that never quite existed. Paris in the 30s, Harlem in the 20s, New Orleans in the 90s, its hard to say.
With original tunes that invite comparison to Kurt Weill, Tom Waits, and Danny Elfman, and a rotating cast of some of the West Coast’s finest hot pickers and swinging horn players, the Sour Mash Hug Band is not to be missed. They have toured the West Coast for some 15 years as well as performing in New York, New Orleans, Chicago, Austin, Krakow, and Budapest. Being exposed to many varieties of music in their travels the musicians have developed a unique cabaret style drawing on traditional jazz, hokum, American fiddle music, muzica lautareasca, and Yiddish theatre.
