The Faux Paws

Friday - January, 21 @ 8:00pm

The year was 2010. Recently-former-teens and long-time brothers Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand met up with their brand new friend, multiinstrumentalist and hot sauce connoisseur Chris Miller, for a fateful adventure. They loaded up a borrowed 1989 Volvo station wagon with fiddles, guitars, banjos and saxophones, and headed out on a five-week road trip through the American southeast. They jammed on the beach, busked under a bridge, hung out at a festival on the Suwannee River, meticulously counted Cracker Barrel billboards and played some very, very strange little shows. And by the end, a band had been born! Over the next decade, Andrew, Noah and Chris continued to tour all over North America, often with the popular dance band Great Bear. Now, THE FAUX PAWS are once again striking out on their own with a distinctive sound that bends and blends traditional folk and classic country with driving dancehall rhythms and explosive improvisation.
