KZUM presents Stransky Park Concert Series 2017
This week we bring you Jack Hotel
“The band is amazing, weaving in and out, dancing, flirting with each other, not as you-take-a-break-then-I’ll-take-a-break, but everybody in and out, nobody stepping on anybody’s toes… creating a fine tapestry of fiddle and dobro and guitar that’s like an organic living thing. I don’t know that I’ve heard anything quite like it. I am stunned into some sad and beautiful truth that is so compelling all one can say is ‘Yup, that’s the way it is.’ This is why people make music. Literal language doesn’t get it. What’s it about? Hey, listen.”
– John Walker, John Walker and the New Hokum Boys
