Yowza! Yowza! Yowza!
Who says there’s nothing to do in Albany on a Monday night?!?
All the way from Paducah, Kentucky, the Dirt Daubers ramble into Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany on Monday night (May 14) with their raucous mix of old-timey Appalachian, revved-up ragtime, hot jazz standards and off-beat original music. From cowboy songs to bluegrass, Harlem jazz to honky tonk, the Daubers throw it all into the blender and spit it out with plenty of vim, vigor and vampin’.
Who are these folks? Colonel JD Wilkes (songwriter and frontman for the Legendary Shack Shakers), his wife Jessica and fellow Shack Shaker Mark Robertson, that’s who. Put ’em all together, and you’ve got the Dirt Daubers.
Presented by UAlbany’s WCDB-FM, the Dirt Daubers take over the stage at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany for one riotous night on Monday (May 14). Nippertown’s own like-minded combo the Slaughterhouse Chorus will do the honors as the opening act at 8pm. Advance tix are $10.
