Thick and Thin Band / Bio

Seasoned musicians with spicy tunes in hot swing, novelty vaudeville, jazz n' jive, Mexican, mystic, and delicate melodies.
With a combined international resume' of 27 music festivals, these five musicians became​ one group to express a rich vision of American music. THICK & Thin is like a whole music festival in one band.
Each member is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, choosing from an onstage array of two violins, three vintage guitars, concertina, 4-string banjo, slide guitar, trumpet, mandolin, ukulele, bass, accordion, 5-string banjo, octave-mandolin, bones, and a bucket.
What will they do next? Funky delta, sweet Mexican cancion, comic vaudeville, fiery gypsy jazz, Mills Brothers bouncy swing, a walk round an old-timey mountain, a rowdy romp, a gorgeous ballad? Each is exquisitely arranged and tweaked to perfection in four part vocal harmony.
Let us join you. ​Together we can create a Special E​vent​ .

"So wonderful! It's varied, so many instruments, not the same singer...different kinds of songs. It's so fun that way."
~ R. Karch

"I will long remember last night's concert. Such beautiful harmonies, sounds that brought tears to my eyes.
A perfect combination of songs and contrasts. Thanks so much for your music in that inspiring setting.
~Love, Judy"
