BROOKLYN OLD-TIME BLUEGRASS PARTY EXTRAVAGANZA: ROUND 3

THE CALAMITY JANES

The Calamity Janes continue their lurid affair with Brooklyn, inspiring foot-tapping in captivated audiences from the Greenpoint shores of the East River, to the muddy waters of the Gowanus Canal, to the crashing waves of Brighton Beach. The stringband of four ladies and one sir, as any good sweetheart, aims only to hold your precious attention. With what, you may ask? Nothing less than the music of America's mountains...old time, old time, old time! So, if you're feeling nostalgic for the good ol' days of 1876 - we're your go-to groove. And, if that isn't convincing enough - our friends at The New Yorker comment that The Calamity Janes are "in their late twenties." Come on! Let's have some fun.

UNION STREET PRESERVATION SOCIETY

Hailed by Glide Magazine’s “Hidden Track” as “tasty and alive” with “brisk, flavorful improvisation” -- Union Street Preservation Society is a genre-bending string band with cross-American roots and Brooklyn inflections. USPS is the complete roots string band experience -- bluegrass and blues, old-time and early jazz, all with a progressive bent. A favorite Americana act in greater NYC, the group's spirited vocal harmonies and runaway-train instrumentals breathe fire and soul into timeless traditionals and emphasize the freshness of their original tunes.

THE THIRD WHEEL BAND 

The Third Wheel Band is an American Roots group from New York City with influences ranging from bluegrass and country, to folk and talking blues, to early jazz and rock 'n' roll. Their sound digs deep into the past and their original tunes carry on the traditions of the American Folk songs they include in their repertoire, in which they lovingly provide a fresh and modern twist. Known for their energetic live shows, the band has been described by The Huffington Post as "impossible not to dance to" and "New York's best hidden bluegrass treasure."
