*Kitchen Dwellers w/ Ghost Town Drifters - THURSDAY
Add to Calendar
Kitchen Dwellers formed three years ago below the Bridger Mountains with the sizzle of afternoon breakfast and the warmth of Irish coffee brewing in the kitchen. What began as a trio, Shawn Swain, Joe Funk, and Kyle Shelstad began writing music and playing traditionals searching for originality and occasionally, other life forms. Torrin Daniels was quickly added on Banjo and the band began playing shows around Bozeman, Montana. The boys began getting into cluster plucks and playing shows with the well established, local bluegrass exrtaordinaires Flatt Cheddar. In the spring of 2012, they added the multi-instrumentalist, Tyler Schultz on fiddle just in time to hit the road for Colorado. The Kitchen Dwellers have opened for high profile artists like Greensky Bluegrass, Pete Kartsounes, WhiteWater Ramble, Head for the Hills, and the Deadly Gentlemen. In the winter of 2013 they won the Zoo Music Awards, a Montana Music Competition based on performance, originality, and popularity. They continue to master their sound, create original work, and foster their live performances.
The boys in this band (not to be confused with boy bands) hail from all over this great country we call the United States. With Joe Funk from Alaska, Shawn Swain from Colorado, Torrin Daniels from Montana, Tyler Schultz from Illinois, and Kyle Shelstad from Wisconsin, they come together to form the most democratic, free form sonic bliss. The standard bluegrass lineup of banjo, mando, fiddle, guitar, and bass, this band's sound is anything but standard. Combining elements of the intergalactic space travel, bluegrass, blues, psychedelic rock and roll, and picking that resembles the sound of laser beams being fired at your head, you'll leave ever wanting more.
