Pokey LaFarge
Saint Louis, MO
 

Dear friends,

 

As we approach the end of 2011, we're thrilled to announce that we'll be appearing on BBC's annual New Year's Eve program "Hootenanny" with  the legendary U.K. musician, bandleader and television host Jools Holland!

 

The program will air at 11 p.m., December 31, 2011 until 1 a.m., January 1, 2012 on BBC Two in the UK. We can’t wait to ring in the new year with other talented artists, including Cyndi Lauper, James Morrison, Aloe Blaac, Ruby Turner, Sandie Shaw, Betty Wright, and The Vaccines. You'll be able to watch the program anywhere in the UK, although it's not available for streaming anywhere else in the world at this time that we know of, sorry folks!  If we figure out how you can watch the program outside of the UK, we'll let you know. 

 

We really can’t express in words how excited we are to have the opportunity to perform on such a popular show. We’re grateful for being selected, and honored as one of the few American bands to be featured on the program this year.

 

Thank you again for making 2011 our best yet. We appreciate your support, and we hope to keep on pleasin’ ya in 2012!

 

Oh yeah, and don't forget about our last couple of shows in 2011, all three with Kansas City's own The Wilders!  They're going to be legendary shows for sure.  See the full schedule and ticket information at the bottom of this newsletter.  Hope to see you there!

 

Happy holidays!

 

Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three


"Pokey LaFarge has taken his penchant for all things vintage and crafted it into an aural anachronism of country, Western swing, ragtime, jazz, bluegrass and Americana in a way that shies away from these technology-obsessed times and brings the nostalgia to Technicolor-life, all the while pushing the boundaries of tradition." — Isamu Jordan, The Spokesman-Review

"Aficionados of Americana and roots music will certainly feel right at home with LaFarge's tunes." — Jay Smith, Pollstar

"The band is hot, and for good reason. The brand of upbeat Americana that emanates from each member just can't be ignored." — Cincinnati Enquirer

"Any band with decent musical aptitude and a passion for the days of sheet music stores, phosphates and the Charleston can churn out covers of songs gleaned from thrift shop 78s and attract a sizable, loyal audience. The real gift is taking that Hot Jazz/Country Blues/Ragtime/Western Swing inspiration and translating it into original and completely contemporary songs; Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three possess that gift. Starting in 2007, LaFarge lent his bellow-to-mellow vocal stylings and love of turn-of-the-last-century Jazz/Blues/Ragtime to a pair of solo albums before assembling the South City Three with fellow St. Louisians Joey Glynn (upright bass), Adam Hoskins (archtop guitar) and Ryan Koenig (snare drum, harmonica, washboard)." — Brian Baker, Citybeat Cincinnati
