Emmitt Nershi Band put on a high energy and intimate show September 30 at The Cabooze. The experience of many years of touring with Leftover Salmon and String Cheese Incident could be felt in a tight connection with each other on stage and with the audience. Almost as pleasing as the music was the ease and style with which it was delivered as the musicians skills could be fully appreciated with the stripped down classic sound. From SCI songs “Black Cloud” and “Texas,” to bluegrass traditionals and band originals, the musicianship, picking and harmonies blended beautifully all night.
Local band, The Gypsy Lumberjacks, got the night started with their own distinct blend of styles. Things that came to mind were Flamenco, bluegrass, improvisational rock, gypsy jazz and good old-fashioned beer swillin’ music. An original set featured an interesting rhythm section consisting of two hand drummers, one on congas/bongos and the other on cajon, also known as “The Box.”
All in all a fun night and a good chance to get up close and personal with artists many have seen on much bigger stages around the country and world.
