Paddlebots is a 7-piece outfit based in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Their unique blend of soul, funk, jazz, and pop sensibilities can be defined simply as “Progressive Soul-Pop”. The soaring solos, tight rhythm and bass, and punctuating horn stabs that define their music is brought to its highest level in their electric live performances.
Saturday, December 8th - The Crane Wives
wsg/ Brian Koenigsnecht - 8:30 doors/9pm show - $10adv/$15 at door
In Japanese folklore, the crane wife is a bird disguised as a woman who spins fine silks from her own feathers, until her identity is discovered. The Crane Wives spin fine songs from whole cloth, and you will never want the melodies to leave your head. From murky origins in Chinese restaurants, high school ska bands, and dorm room jam sessions, the band came together in 2010 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and immediately began gathering a following with intricate melodies, sister-harmonies, and compelling songcraft. Initially part of the indie folk boom, their sound has grown and broadened with each new recording till categorization becomes difficult: rock, pop, folk? Just call it really good music!
