The Roswell Sisters

The Roswell Sisters are a close-harmony vocal trio specializing in a combination of 30’s jazz and 60’s pop. From the shifting tempos and lightning fast key changes of the classic Boswell Sisters arrangements to brand new Boswell-style compositions culled from more recent hits, The Roswell Sisters offer an opportunity for some old-time harmonizing as well as some fresh, hip and totally modern pop. The old and new merge seamlessly in one exciting package!

David Serby

One of LA’s most gifted singer-songwriters David Serby’s latest release represents a sharp left turn from the music that has acquired a loyal following among LA’s country fans. His first three albums – I Just Don’t Go Home (2006), Another Sleepless Night(2007) and Honky Tonk and Vine – flexed a brawling honky tonk sound in the grand West Coast manner. His most recent album, 2011’s Poor Man’s Poem, was a dark, acoustic-based folk cycle that still cleaved to Serby’s California-bred country roots.

It’s made from bamboo, palm, salvaged lumber, an extension ladder, baby jogger wheels, paper mache’, rags, paint, tomato cages, and washed out discards from the LA River.

Stella the Steelhead has Migrated to the Frog Spot for the summer – come and visit.
