Free: Junk Parlor
July 10, 2013
Yoshi's Local Talent Series: FREE live music in The Lounge 6:30 to 10:00pm!
Junk Parlor was a concept born 15 years ago by guitarist Jason Vanderford but hasn’t reared its creative head until this year. Jason has been playing guitar professionally for 8 years touring extensively with bands such as The Hot Club Of San Francisco, Americano Social Club, Clint Bakers New Orleans Jazz Band, Little Charlie’s Caravan, Avatar Ensemble and Seth Ford Young Quartet. This project, although heavily influenced by Traditional New Orleans Jazz and Gypsy Jazz, has a Rock and Roll twist with the group doing originals and renditions of great rock and roll tunes. Along with Jimmy Grant (Jimmy Grant Ensemble, George Cole), Rt Goodrich Staggerwing, Beso Negro), Tim Bush (Danny Montana, Sweetie Pie and the Doughboys) The group uses acoustic gypsy jazz style guitars, electric guitars, banjo, cajon, drums and bass along with Jason’s throaty howling vocals to produce a unique yet accessible sound. Let us make your dreams come true!
