This pairing sounds like great fun - unfortunately I will be out of town - Chicago to be exact, however there is nothing to stop you from enjoying some great music.
The Boxcar Boys are described via the press release as combining the elements of old time jazz, gypsy, klezmer, folk and with a soupcon of New Orleans flair - the band consists of Rob Teehan on sousaphone (Rob is also in another great band "The Heavyweights"), John David Williams on clarinet, Karl Silveira on trombone, Laura Bates on fiddle and Ronen Segall on accordion. They play a mixture of originals and such classics as Hank Williams "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry".
An equally interesting musical stew is served up by their bandstand mates, "The Roofhoppers" and this trio contains one of the former "Jazzology" guests - the very talented Adrian Gross on mandolin and guitar.
Hugh's is a great venue so I know you will have extra helpings of merriment on my behalf.
