If you are looking to put a smile on your face today, sit back and give a good look and listen to Old Man Markley’s YouTube video that details their adventures from their winter of 2013 tour with the Dropkick Murphys. They were on tour to promote their second album “Down Side Up” which is a must own for fans of great music.
The vocals are truly impressive. Their sound has been described as a galloping rhythm, laced with lightning fast instrumentation of banjo, violin, and whatever other instruments they can get their hands on. I saw the washboard in use but I suspect they can grab an ashtray and bang a table with the best of them. This band is having fun and it shows.
I am a fan of Weird Al Yankovic and his amazing band. This band reminds me so much of them. If you are going to have fun with your music you need to master your music. It is a great compliment to praise their musicianship. Speaking of Weird Al, give this band a good listen and tell me if you don’t hear what I hear.
Old Man Markley is Johnny Carey (vocals, guitar), Annie DeTemple (autoharp, vocals), Joey Garibaldi (bass, vocals), Jeff Fuller (drums), Ryan Markley (washboard), John Rosen (banjo, vocals) and Katie Weed (fiddle, vocals). Critics would likely classify this band as “newgrass” because they are not easily defined as a bluegrass band. I don’t care what you call it, this is great music.
The band is easy to follow. You can preview and purchase their music through our preferred music partner, Amazon.com.
