Shag band

February 17, 2010 - France / OIWCIT

The Shag Cafe has a new house band. Naturally, they’re called “Shag Band”. They’ve got a very cool washboard – actually two different types of washboard with various other bits of kitchen equipment bolted to it. Here’s a very short clip – apologies for the sound quality, but I think the video does capture a certain je ne sais quoi, and at least it is short…

    I wish my local had a shag band. :-(

    When’s their next gig? Maybe I should come and see them…

    There’s some swing on at the Shag Cafe every Tuesday – right now it seems that 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month are the Malcolm Potter Trio (who are great) and pretty much all the other Tuesdays it’s the Shag Band… and yeah, you should come out. I’m trying to work out what dates are free right now and I’ll drop you an email once I know for sure.
