RedLefty calls their music swingin' blues, which is the short way of saying roots- folk- dixieland- bluegrass- country- klezmer- ragtime- hoedown- swing- blues music
The six members of RedLefty-Jeff Williams (guitar), Dan Rempel (guitar, vocals), Chris Millspaugh (harmonica, trumpet), Nate Craft (trombone, vocals), Sean McCue (upright bass) and Tennyson LeMaster (percussion)-initially came together with the intention of making a blues band. What resulted was a unique melding of vintage American styles and genres designed to set toes a-tapping and get bodies to swinging on the dance floor.
Street Level dodges a pack of medium-sized watchdogs to crash a RedLefty practice session and get the poop on head tunes, the sartorial imperative and the notion that evolution is always an improvement.
