SLCene Suggests: Felice Brothers at The State Room

by on October 8, 2014


FELICE BROTHERS, THE STATE ROOM, Thursday, Oct. 9, 8 p.m., $20

I can’t lie, the first thing that appealed to me about the Felice Brothers when I saw them do an in-store at Slowtrain a few years back was a song called “Whiskey in My Whiskey.” Not only did I have a natural affinity for the song’s sentiments, but the combination of old-timey instrumentation and vocal harmonies was instantly appealing. Accordions, guitars, fiddles, drums and piano fill out the New York band’s sound,which they forged playing in the subway stations of New York City after first performing at their dad’s regular Sunday barbecues in the Catskill Mountains. It’s been a couple years since Felice Brothers came through Utah, and their tour in support of new album Favorite Waitress brings them back for what should be a fine little hoedown on a Thursday night. Spirit Family Reunion opens the show.
