This three-piece band’s blend of bluegrass, blues, and ragtime isn’t exclusive within the zeitgeist of old-timey Americana, but frontman Pete Bernhard’s songwriting includes classic Biblical themes—good and evil, the cycles of death and rebirth, the climb from self-destruction to redemption—in a genuine, straightforward manner, and sets the group apart. And while he and his bandmates might harmonize over Hallelu, the spirit of irreverence is never far off. After all, this is the guy who pointed out “if you’re gonna do wrong, buddy, do wrong right.”— Do Wrong Right (2009)

$22.50. 8pm. January 16, St. Andrews Hall, 431 E Congress St, Detroit, MI 48226, (313) 961-8961
