Three To See

| Print |

Magnolia Summer—Summer is certainly on the way, and it’s nice to know that there are cool groups like Magnolia Summer to go and see. This band offers a unique blend of country and rock, often with three guitars going at once and a violin, playing melodies that easily draw the audience in. The group is not afraid to break a sweat as they burn through their set, and Chris Grabau’s voice fits perfectly over the haunting melodies and overall solid sound. Magnolia Summer is certainly one of the hot new bands in the local music scene.

When one thinks of the name “Earl,” they probably think of a person down the street they can go and see anytime. This is true of the band Earl as well, but it isn’t hard to see why they play so many gigs. It’s hard not to have a great time at one of their shows. They offer a great mix of southern rock and punk with a country feel. The band can be seen wearing cowboy hats, and the singer is a high- energy vocalist who also tears it up on harmonica. This, along with their electric guitar sound, tends to send audience members to their feet. If you want to be entertained, this is a good band to see.

Monica Casey—It’s hard to forget Monica Casey’s songs once you hear them. This singer/songwriter/acoustic guitar player plays a mix of country and folk which is sure to satisfy anyone who enjoys the genre. There’s no shortage of great hooks and strong guitar work, and her voice is perfectly suited for her sound. Along with advice in her songs suggesting that people go and “buy a new pair of shoes” if they are feeling down, she offers a variety of cover tunes to her set and is very personable with the audience. So put on a new pair of shoes and go hear her play.
