Welterweight

Sunday - June, 17 @ 7:00pm

So, Welterweight is a folk band, but not really. It’s a rock band, but only a smidge. An originals band, but not all the time. A satisfying cover band, maybe, sometimes. Sitting in the audience, you might find yourself thinking “huh, I know that song, don’t I? Yup, it’s that one, I think…hmm, not bad!” Not bad, indeed…thoughtful, catchy originals and re-interpretations of good songs gone by.

Welterweight exists in the world of not-quite-adult oriented music. Maybe “hard soft rock” is a better description. Or possibly “new timey”, using traditional string instrumentation, around the non-traditional songs of memory, longing, and lots of dumb decisions. “A little alienation, some arthritis, and the creeping of creature comforts as we try to grow up.”

Doug Cowan - lead vocal, guitar, songwriter

John Nunan - percussion, backing vocals

Greg Bjork - mandolin, backing vocals

Tom Kubasik - stand up bass, backing vocals

Tess Gionet - violin, backing vocals
