”These guys play with dust in their Levis and the road their hearts”.
We are delighted to announce that The Dodge Brothers are performing songs from their long-awaited new album and bringing their exuberant hybrid of country blues, rockabilly, jugband and skiffle to The Electric Palace.
You will be one of the first to hear this long-awaited new album, coming 5 years since The Sun Set. This special Bridport gig comes hot on the heels of their London album launch in late September.
THE DODGE BROTHERS
The Dodge Brothers are renowned for playing the hell out of classic Americana.
Described as “wonderful stuff” by Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris, they play an exuberant hybrid of country blues, rockabilly, jugband and skiffle.
Firmly rooted in these traditions The Dodge Brothers bring to them a freshness that has feet stomping and hands clapping from California to Cropredy, from the Mississippi to the New Forest. Their songs feature vocal virtuosity and heartfelt harmonies underpinned by joyous guitars, thumping double bass and rattlin’ snare and washboard.
The Dodge Brothers features Mike Hammond (lead guitar, lead vocals, banjo), Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica, vocals), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Alex Hammond (washboard, snare drum, percussion).
Their music has an authentically American tang – lead guitarist/vocalist Mike Hammond was raised in Alabama and his youthful musical travels took him all over the southern and western USA – but with a strong British perspective from Culture Show presenter and film critic Mark Kermode.
