Swang Bros, Kelley & the Cowboys

When: Fri., April 9, 10 p.m. 2010

Part swing, part twang, The Swang Brothers deliver sentimental country crooning with early rockabilly bravura. Strummed acoustic guitar rings as slapped upright bass pulses. The glistening electric guitar sings counterpoint with deep and longing vocals. This trio's songs seem picked out of the air after traveling over the AM radio waves of the 1950s deep into the night. Led by the bluesy, no-nonsense vocals of Kelley Breiding, Kelley & The Cowboys take tonight's other half. The boys behind her—whether with fiddle and mandolin or stripped down to only guitar, bass and drums—shake dance floors with upbeat western swing and honky tonk. Consider Breiding the rodeo queen. —Andrew Ritchey
