“Want to hear the melting pot that’s the ongoing cultural experiment known as the United States of America? Then you should listen to the Resonant Rogues. The Asheville, N.C., group blends Balkan, klezmer, gypsy, hot jazz and old-time influences to create a genre-blending music that couldn’t happen anywhere else.” –Chris Bopst of Style Weekly. They have a few gigs in their hometown and in Charlotte before hightailing it to Colorado for much of December.

Mark Schimick (Asheville) has been a mandolin maniac with Larry Keel & Natural Bridge for years, and we know Josh Daniel (Charlotte) as guitarist with the New Familiars. Bassist Greg Howell is from the Outer Banks, and rounds out the trio of the JDMS Project. They have a string of shows in Charlotte, Asheville, & Shelby these next few weeks; keep up with them here, and by tuning in Thursday afternoon!
