The Sumner Brothers, Sam Masterton, James Apollo

Sat. August 14th 2010 8:30 Railway Club (No Minors) 8:30
$10 at the door only.
Saturday, August 14th:
The Sumner Brothers, Sam Masterton, James Apollo and guests:

"Drawing on the grumbling jazz stylings of Nighthawks-era Tom Waits, Apollo lists his influences as cactus flowers, Ennio Morricone and Faulkner—which sounds about right to us". TimeOut New York

Sam Masterton of Run GMC’s music has been described as, among other things, “gospel country roots”, “truck-drivin', foot-stompin' hillbilly [mania]”, and “acoustic swing with a backbeat”. Whatever the adjectives, Sam is good and his music is great and people with working ears and any sense at all are starting to take notice.

Honesty is the bloodline of The Sumner Brothers music. Like many of their heroes before them; Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt or Neil Young, their songs aim to pierce hearts and dig deep beneath the skin. If the Brothers don’t own a song, if it does not live in the depths of their hearts and come from that place of true raw emotion, it doesn’t come at all, if they don’t believe it, you won’t hear it from them.

Doors 8:30 pm, cover $10
