JACK BURTON OVERDRIVE:
Cincinnati, Ohio band Jack Burton Overdrive (JBO) formed in 2006 around the concept of playing unique arrangements of their favorite songs based around vocals and a simple concertina and ukulele core. Concertina player Nick Barrows (Jetlab) and rhythm ukulelist Jack Rininger honed their skills on their own vision of the Great Amercan Songbook, working up arrangements from such disparate sources as Elvis (Suspicious Minds), RadioHead (Creep) and Cincinnati faves Wussy (Airborne).
Experimental folk project Crowey draws from many influence including prog, jazz, new age, classical, and pop to create an emotionally intense atmosphere.
