Sam Doores & The Deslondes with The Cactus Blossoms and Jack Klatt & The Cat Swingers

Monday, October 21, 2013 - 7:30pm

Seated show

Sam Doores & The Deslondes

Formerly known as Sam Doores & the Tumbleweeds, Sam Doores & The Deslondes may have had a name change, but they haven't lost any of their high energy, New Orleans-flavored country-soul sound. By turn paying homage to the greats such as Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, John Prine, The Band and Allen Toussaint, the band's music yet succeeds on its own terms, and makes a contemporary, original contribution to great American music.

Rounding out the evening nicely, there'll be opening sets by trad country act The Cactus Blossoms, and retro barroom-blues/folk band Jack Klatt & the Cat Swingers.

"...clever, ragtime flavored tunes and he’s one helluva guitarist to boot. Great songs with witty lyrics and when he’s taking a break from a hard luck troubadour’s verse, he’s tickling our ears with fancy fingerpicking and note flying." (Rift Magazine) Jack...
