Event Archive - ROOTS ROCK HOE-DOWN!: Cowboys and Indians, The Sumner Brothers, Desert Radio, Fera

Sat. November 8th 2008 Railway Club (No Minors)
Presented by: I.M.U. Productions
. Saturday, Nov 8th I.M.U. presents COWBOYS AND INDIANS, The SUMNER BROTHERS, DESERT RADIO & FERA @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir

COWBOYS AND INDIANS - Join one of Vancouver's newest folk rock country blues bands formed by Barnaby McRae, Daniel Huscroft & Ryan McAllister (former lead singer of the band Dakona) as they showcase tightly crafted Americana-roots style tunes for your drinkin' pleasure. Expect a full serving of timeless tales delivered with deeply emotive vocals soaked in Tennessee Whiskey and combined skillfully with steel & acoustic guitars and flourishes of harmonica that will transport you to a simpler time in the dusty past, a time of Cowboys and Indians.

The SUMNER BROTHERS have garnered an incredible amount of attention in the short amount of time they have been a duo. Mixing originals and covers into a laid-back country-Delta-blues-roots blender, they float between traditional country, blues and folk, with a dash of bluegrass thrown in, making for a very tasty musical recipe. Described as "Old Crow Medicine Show meets the White Stripes", their rockin, foot stompin, rustic-roots sound has been favourably compared to Stompin Tom and Johnny Cash. Come out and see why Samantha Parton of The Be Good Tanyas calls them her "new favorite band".


DESERT RADIO's original combination of Americana, Classic & Southern Rock is the soundtrack of a road trip to Juarez in a '68 Dodge where Merle Haggard, The Who and Elvis Costello all play on the mix tape stuck in the dashboard deck. A few years ago, old friends were looking for an excuse to hang out, drink lots of beer and write some great, country-flavoured rock 'n' roll, and one thing led to another and they soon found themselves playing shows and recording tracks. "February Day" (from their recently released debut album) became the number one ranked Americana genre song in the history of garageband.com, leading to features on Budweiser.com as well as NASCAR's use of the track in a Speed Channel video tribute to Dale Earnhardt Sr. that was broadcast throughout North America.

FERA - Stephanie and Courtney Fera, twin sisters from a gifted Coquitlam musical family, are emerging as one of Vancouver's leading alt country rock duos. No wonder their evocative lyrics and intricate harmonies are catching lots of attention on the West Coast -- and increasingly throughout Canada!
