bluesy, psychedelic & twangy528 Jose Street, Santa Fe, NMKitchen Sink Studio7:30 doors, 8:00 show
Trevor Bahnson opens the show.
Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Northern California’s Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter. Lush instrumentation combined with frontman Graham Patzner’s profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzner’s voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate live show as the band’s classic rock sound seamlessly cascades through realms of bluesy passion, psychedelic meloncholy, and twangy celebration. Whiskerman’s shows tend to set spells, either sweeping the audience up in revelation, or dropping them into knee-slapping frenzy. Joining Patzner (vocals, guitar, violin and piano), is Will Lawrence (bass and mandolin), and Charles Lloyd (guitar and sitar), Dan Schwartz (drums), and Trevor Bahnson (guitar).
