Earles of Newtown is a powerhouse Americana band that focuses their original song stylings around early era Harlem, New Orleans and “Hot” Jazz, along with Texas and Western Swing creating a sound all its own simply called “Swingin’ Dixie”.
This impressive eight piece band delivers a full-on show in and of themselves. Dressed to the nines performing sultry dance tunes and boasting a fine three piece horn section while two dynamic lead vocalists front a classic big band rhythm section which includes upright bass, banjo, lead & slide guitars, piano and drums.
Earles of Newtown received the “Best Live Band of 2014 Award” from the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce in Northern California.
Notable performances include opening for Dr. John and Allen Toussant as well as March Fourth Marching Band.
Earles of Newtown ain’t just whistling Dixie. They’re swinging it like nobody ever did it before. Packing a distinctive Americana punch, Earle’s original tunes mix Harlem and New Orleans jazz traditions with hometown Nevada City roots – plus a pinch of playa dust to keep it surreal. A hard-driving horn section. Dueling vocals. Over-the-top talent on banjo, guitar and piano. Put it all together. You’ve got the new jazz sensation where hot sass meets cool class. And your feet just can’t be still.
