The Resonant Rogues 

When: Thu., July 10 2014

folk, gypsy jazz, 8 p.m.

The Resonant Rogues are a real treat. If you’re in the mood for something groovy, a little off-kilter, and altogether fun to listen to, then you need to familiarize yourself with this Asheville band immediately. Go ahead. I’ll wait. OK. Welcome back. First off, was I right, or was I right? If you checked out the band’s most recent work, April’s Swing Set EP, then you know exactly what I’m talking about here. You have to love the lumbering gypsy-jazz pacing of “When I’m Gone,” or the way the acoustic guitar, violin, and accordion all meld together seamlessly on tracks like “What Lies Ahead.” Of course, maybe your favorite part was when vocalist, banjoist, and accordion player Sparrow added sassy, almost seductive lines like “He’s got the most nice everything in town” on the ragtime-style track “Most Nice,” or when she showed off her French on “Douce Ambiance.” There’s a lot to like here, especially since The Resonant Rogues sound like a gleefully unplugged street band just trying to give you another reason to enjoy your summer night out. This is fine entertainment, so stop reading this, and go discover your new favorite band now. In addition to a performance on the laid-back grounds of Awendaw Green, the band will also play on Thurs. July 10 at The Mill in North Charleston and Fri. July 11 on Folly Beach at Chico Feo. —Brian Palmer NEXT WEDNESDAY
