Mobile Homeboys’ Americana | Union Square Live 2013
For over a decade now, the Mobile Homeboys have been making good times happen with a uniquely satisfying blend of American roots music, ace musicianship, and an energetic, crowd-pleasing approach to performance. The six-man outfit draws on the rich American history of country, bluegrass, blues, rock’n’roll, and traditional music, and deftly conjures up a world of dark hollows and mystery trains, of honky tonk women and midnight riders, of jugs of moonshine and bowls of jambalaya. Wielding the tools of their trade–banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar, harmonica, bass and drums–along with some frequently tuneful 5-part harmony, the Mobile Homeboys happily ramble through the thickets of Americana sounds, in search of the spot where “Cripple Creek” runs into “Whiskey River,” and looking for the dusty road that leads out of “Lodi’ and straight to “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The 2013 Union Square Live festival presents 70+ free events like live music, swing & tango dance lessons, film nights, circus arts, and more in Union Square Park from April 21 through October 9, 2013.
