The Hot Seats + Gap Civil

Bluegrass, Folk

The Hot Seats play string band music with simple intentions: to keep the role of traditional musician as entertainer and commentator alive and kicking. They combine the virtuosic soloing and tightness of bluegrass, the band-driven rhythm of old time, the jerky bounce of ragtime, and the swagger of good old rock and roll. Add some eastern melodies, a few modernist ideals, and an uncanny feel for comic timing, and you begin to understand their sound.
