Heavy T & The Blue Notes

At the core of HT&TBN is bearded howler Tom "Heavy T" Bukowski and his bass-playing son, Augie. The father-son duo is surrounded by a team of crackerjack musicians with jazz, classical, and punk backgrounds (like Clam Hamr guitar prodigy Patrick Dwyer) who can belt out blues standards just as well as they can jam off the cuff. They approach their covers with diverse arrangements that add to their swing, and the original numbers they've worked into their set as of late hint at a restless creativity beneath their technical savvy. With Boxcar Rebellion. TODD HAMM
