Driveway Thriftdwellers @ Mason Lounge

In full disclosure, I am playing bass with country Americana band, Driveway Thriftdwellers, at Summerfest on Thursday July 4th at 1 PM.

But because some Madison folks won't make it to Milwaukee on July 4th, the band is going to perform the Summerfest set at the Mason Lounge in Madison on Wednesday evening, July 3rd. 8 to 10 PM (not too late for a school night!). It's kind of like a dress rehearsal for Summerfest, so why not invite a live studio audience?

So I hope you can check out Driveway Thriftdwellers on July 3rd. They play about 50% original music, and the song writing is superb. The cover songs range from old school country (Buck Owens and Merle Haggard) to more jam rock Americana (Flying Burrito Brothers and Gram Parsons). I am not a huge country fan, but I dig this material and it's an honor to play bass for them.

The Mason Lounge is a chill and geeky little bar, with many craft brews on tap. They have jazz there every Tuesday night from 9 to midnight, cozy and social and not too loud.

    Good. Although I am a terrible host, given my preoccupation with stage performing.
