Kenzie Crowe & the Flaming Hots / The Wildmans
June 22, 2018 : 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Kenzie Crowe & The Flaming Hots with The Wildmans at Dogtown – Fri June 22 – 8 pm – $3
Kenzie Crowe and the Flaming Hots is a high-energy band out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, by way of Nashville. Specializing in creative rock originals and select covers, the quartet features the unlikely pairing of electric cello and Hammond organ courtesy of sisters Kenzie and Laila Crowe, who also perform vocal/guitar and violin/mandolin duties respectively. Their multi-instrumentalism finds structure and is supported by the timekeeping mastery of father Kevin Crowe on drums and Carol Crowe on bass.
Opening the show will be the acoustic string band The Wildmans, from right here in the hills of Floyd, Virginia, in the heart of the Appalachian mountain music tradition. From campsite jamming at festivals and fiddler’s conventions and classical music education comes the foundation for musical exploration that sets this group apart, taking the audience on a musical journey that reflects the growth and passion of these talented young musicians.
The band features the talents of siblings Eli Wildman on mandolin and Aila Wildman on fiddle and vocals, award winning old time banjo player Victor Furtado, and Eli and Aila’s mom Deb Wildman on bass. Highly skilled instrumentals and soulful vocals applied to traditional tunes with a smattering of old time, bluegrass, blues, and jazz combine to create a fresh new sound – old tunes fueled by young spirit.
