Shotgun Party is set to take the stage at the Rear Window Listening Room in Ganado at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Shotgun Party has been dazzling audiences since 2006 when they became an ensemble of streetwise and gifted musicians and singers.
The original Shotgun Party trio met in a little Texas dive bar in 2006. They got their start performing weekly at Austin's Continental Club.
Sparks flew and now Shotgun Party, the Austin-based trio, really knows how to fire up a crowd.
Their original songs are beautiful and timeless drawing influences from early blues, country, bluegrass and depression era swing. Katy Rose Cox's fearless fiddling is simply virtuosic.
Jenny Parrott's gorgeous vocals and addictive songs will bring you to your knees. ...and introducing Shotgun Party's newest member, Andrew Austin-Petersen, formerly of the Shake 'Em Ups, on show stopping upright bass. With tight harmonies and lively stage antics, Shotgun Party will leave you with a smile ear to ear.
"Unheralded opening trio Shotgun Party blew the house away with a set of Texas swing that had one foot among the tumbleweeds and the other in outer space. Singer Jenny Parrot has an arresting, brassy voice with a permanent, fluttering vibrato, and a stage presence that was just art-school enough to let you know somebody up there's a-thinkin.' Kind of like a two-step Bjork, without the annoyance factor. Fiddler Kay Rose Cox gets virtuoso honors for the night; her solos were hair-raising, heroic statements. Shotgun Party will be back, and when they are, go," according to the Club Helsinki Show Review at Metroland Online.
