JT and the Dragpipes CL Recommends

When: Sat., Oct. 6 2012
JT AND THE DRAGPIPES Fronted by Charlotte-area rockabilly fixtures Jem Crossland and Tommy Ray, JT and the Dragpipes smoke their tires, slick their hair back and cruise into your ears with ’50s style and grit. Backed by Austin Granger on stand-up bass and former Drat drummer John Marlow on the skins, the quartet plays a solid mixture of covers and originals (including some Crossland and Tommy Ray and the Ray-Guns tunes) filled with slapped bass and greased-up guitar riffs. Is it groundbreaking stuff? It’s not trying to be. The playful guitar work of the frontmen simply takes a defibrillator to a bygone era; reinjecting life into a classic style. The band’s foot-tapping, swing-dancing sounds just might wail enough to blow your top. So, don’t be a square — get your jeans rolled right, your ’do slicked back and enjoy the ride, daddy-o.
— Jeff Hahne
