Wine Down Friday ft. Stable Shakers
June 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$5
They’re debut as the transforming Sons of Pitches into the amazing Stable Shakers will happen here at Knob Hall Winery on Friday, June 1st at 7pm!
The Stable Shakers are an ever-changing, dynamic instrumental twang jazz group that have no intention on fitting into a cookie cutter genre. Recently, the Stable Shakers have doubled down on this ideology, by bringing in Nashville recording artist and vocalist Brechyn Chace of The Hello Strangers. Brechyn brings of wealth of talent, energy, and a remarkable versatility, segueing from country ballad, to swinging jazz, to sultry blues all with an undeniable folky flair.
Hailing from the Cumberland Valley farmlands of Pennsylvania, the group formed after a serendipitous New Years Eve show at the Birchmere Music Hall, where backstage former Hello Strangers band-mates guitarist Spencer Pheil and bassist Tommy Hoy met with pedal steel player Dave Hadley (Bumper Jacksons), who currently fills out the instrumental outfit alongside long-time and talented drummer Jim Aguzzi. Together, the four embarked on an instrumental crusade to bring improvisation into genres that had traditional rigidity and are giving them a refreshing new life.
But don’t think the Stable Shakers will stop there. Shows continue to challenge and shift, as the group can perform with countless combinations of featured guest musicians, from keyboardists, to vocalists as well as changing from quartet to trio and duo. Many shows feature several sets of multiple configurations, all different, and yet all complementary to each other. Their brand of improvisation is meant to be visceral and tactile: music for the people.
The Stable Shakers have big plans moving forward into the Summer of 2018. They announced two complementary full length albums – one with Vocalist Brechyn Chace and one fully instrumental, with both exclusively featuring original works from Spencer Pheil. Both are yet to be titled, but will be released later this year.
