Banshee Tree w/ High Step Society
May 11 @ 8:00 pm$10 – $15
Banshee Tree is a high energy quartet that blends modern indie, trance and psychedelic rock with old school Django inspired jazz. Using traditional instruments through a range of pedals, they tie the styles and sounds of modern music to the earthy roots of acoustic music in a whole new way. Their live show is a wild dance party with a great deal of improvisation that remains grounded in indie style songwriting. There is nothing quite like it on the scene.
Banshee Tree has shared the stage with artists including Devotchka, Keller Williams, Dirtwire and Moontricks. They released their debut album in August 2021 and are currently working on their second. Over the course of 2021 and 2022, Banshee Tree has grown from playing a weekly residency in the Hotel Boulderado’s basement speakeasy, to internationally touring, performing at clubs, theaters and festivals from coast to coast as well as Europe.
High Step Society is a dance party from another dimension; a high-flying, beat-dropping, big band rocket ship with an ear to the past, and both feet on the gas. This dynamic band is bringing jazz back to the party, where it belongs.
This 7-piece band’s mission is to bring people together, to create a celebratory space that transcends the troubles of this world. Capturing the spirit of the Jazz Age and launching it a century forward, this band breaks down the divisions between us and replaces them with the irresistible urge to dance together.
High stepping is a state of mind, and a movement to be part of. Dress yourself up nice, act classy, and lift your best foot way up to the sky. Hop on the HSS Express and let’s ride this wave together towards better times.
