My friend Aram suggested the Deadstring Brothers for 3hive, and I think I know why. You see, Aram knows the oeuvre of Bob Dylan the way the rest of us know our birthday or the alphabet. I think, in the roots rock of the Deadstring Brothers, he hears a little tribute to Bob, or at least a recognition of the work of Bob’s son Jakob and his band, The Wallflowers. On the other hand, maybe he just thinks they’re a decent band. Either way, enjoy that pedal steel guitar slide in “27 Hours,” and thanks, Aram!

The Deadstring Brothers performed at last year's Tastefest in Detroit (for those of you who haven't been, it's a great place to see alot of great bands for free!) on a small side stage and caught my ear as I was passing by with a plate of ribs. They got me hooked with a great rendition of The Band's classic tune Get Up Jake. Good times. And a great band.
I like it, especially the steel guitar. Thanks, Aram!
i like this a lot. smart lyrics and good twang. 🙂
