|Saturday 06 July 2013 @ 9:00pm - Mellow Peaches|
Who doesn’t like a good sandwich? And who isn’t particularly keen on an especially rare one?
Imagine two fine slices of the best blues, separated by a cordon bleu concoction of respect and irreverence, spiced with the moreish condiments of wit and finger-picking virtuosity. If you’ve had a 12-bar baguette, a Delta-on-rye, or a country ciabatta, you might think you know what this is going to taste like. The Mellow Peaches would wager otherwise.
Other than sandwiches, Amit and Rich also like music. Their supple, playful guitar work complements perfectly the vim and vigour of lyrics often whimsical, sometimes acerbic, but always memorable. Like that little toothpick the swankiest places stick through the bread, it’s the melodies that keep it all together: you could hum along should you be able to hear yourself over the stomps.
Mellow Peaches have been traipsing across their native Midlands, and as far afield as Ghent, to bring this zesty mix of blues and folk to the people. This means they’re often hungry. Are you?
Purveyors of rootsy stomps and gutsy grooves, the unassuming Peaches have long immersed themselves into traditional, organic and freshly sourced American blues and roots, mixing it up with their own gumbo of exotic flavours to create a wholesome dish that aids digestion.
