Washboard Rodeo

comment

Washboard Chaz's freewheeling blues style, in his eponymous trio and with the Palmetto Bug Stompers, includes more than a few phrases from the hot jazz lexicon. With this spanking-new project " this show will be its third gig " Chaz embraces Western swing, the Americanized version of the string-driven hot club sound made famous by dancehall two-step legends like Bob Wills' Texas Playboys and Spade Cooley. The five-piece Rodeo features Hot Club of New Orleans members Matt Rhody on fiddle and mandolin, Matt Johnson swinging the acoustic guitar, Cosmic Krewe alum Dr. Jimbo Walsh on upright bass and Chaz himself on snare drum and, of course, washboard. Free admission. — Alison Fensterstock
