Above Ground with Bandits on the Run
Bandits on the Run is a group of whimsical criminals that sound like a nostalgic medley of old and new: strummed, plucked, and bowed away on cello and nylon string guitar, and propped up on an old timey spine of three part harmony. Their tools are various and sundry, a motley mix of off-beat pop music covers, reworked jazz and rock standards, and originals that’ll make you feel like deja vu all over again. At the center of this dangerous crime ring are Roy Dodger, guitar & vocals (a.k.a. Adrian Enscoe); Bonanza Jellyfish, cello & vocals (a.k.a. Sydney Shepherd); and “Clarissa,” percussion & vocals (a.k.a. Regina Strayhorn).
