Busman's Holiday
Busman's Holiday
A Busman’s Holiday performance begins with the thump of kick-pedal on suitcase and the tuning of acoustic guitar strings, two affable brothers quietly considering where to take their audience first. They may begin with an exultant and driving harmony or a ballad in a melancholy mode, but not before they have laughed and shared stories with their audience, patient and cheerful, assuring the crowd that they are in good hands. As Lewis and Addison begin to sing, their voices together evoke the Southern Indiana where their music was born. One can’t help but feel the presence of the songs’ characters in the room beside you, the music offering intimate details from vivid strangers.

The Rogers brothers’ appeal has never been limited to a niche audience. Tested on the road for years, playing music at honky-tonks and roadhouses, moth-eaten lounges crawling with night creatures, punk palaces, last-wave folk huts, they’ve honed their skills and free-flowing banter to the point where they’ve been able to endear themselves to all corners.

Hailing from various peninsulas, Almost Isles is what happens when you take Miami flavor and add in some Motown and Philly soul.

Jazz inspired guitar riffs accented with a diabolical rhythm section are sure to have you dancing, which is exactly what this Philadelphia based trio wants to see.

Almost Isles is finding its place in Philly’s music scene one show at a time.
