From their website:
"This here is a big tent gospel bluegrass band. The influences on this band run from Pentecostal gospel, to do wop, bluegrass, country western and swing and a touch of Django . The harmonies
are Jazz influenced and heartfelt. The band also features spoken word front porch poetry w/ musical accompaniment. We are like the weather, If you don’t like us, wait five minutes. We stay
within the tradition, but push the edges where we can."

The Fifth String promotes house concerts as part of our ongoing support of the Northern California acoustic music community. Some of the best acoustic groups from around the area are showcased at the Fifth String and other nearby venues.
