Radio Woodstock and Warren Haynes present the Mountain Jam 1V from May 30th to June 1, 2008.
Just wanted to give a shout-out to the talented and awesome band Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned. They won the Mountain Jam competition and were chosen to open on Saturday, May 31st, on the west stage at 12:00 PM for a half-hour set.
Sgt Dunbar's nine players boast a crazy array of instruments: guitar, accordion, trumpet, trombone, flugelhorn, French horn, drums, mandolin, saxophone, violin, ukulele, singing saws, banjo, bass, typewriter.
Their passionate folk styling has a kind of sloppy gypsy jug band feel with full brass and awesome auxiliary detailing from the singing bow to the typewriter. Don’t be fooled this band of hobos can play and each member is a multi-instrumentalist.
Watching the constant instrument rotation is part of the fun, but the full-bodied charm of the sound they create is delightful.
They are DIY all the way and truly live by and play by the rule of the music community. They Share!!
