Jimmy Tri-Tone Band

8:30pm
“JTTB is James Walters (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Randelle Ashley (bass, keys, mandolin, harmony vocals). James has a fantastic, gravelfilled voice and a really engaging (and slightly menacing) intensity when he performs that is perfectly suited to songs about outlaws, lost loves, and life. Randelle’s piano accompaniments are fluid and suggest that she has spent a lot of time in front of a keyboard. Together, the duo plays a mix of alt-folkcountry originals and rearranged covers that really suit James’ rich baritone. I was really impressed with the songwriting on the originals; there was lots of inventiveness in both the music and the lyrics — like I said, these two work hard.” — Rob Riendeau, Pub Crawling, TheHumm.
