David Huckfelt w/Michael Rossetto & Driveway Thriftdwellers
The East Side Club – A cosmic folk duo with deep Midwestern roots and a keen ear for the dark & other-wordly in American song, David Huckfelt of The Pines & Michael Rossetto have been making music together for more than a decade. Touring extensively with The Pines & other projects including Pieta Brown, Erik Koskinen, Frankie Lee & more, this rare duo performance highlights Rossetto's distinctive 5-string banjo & electric guitar style and Huckfelt's lyrically rich song-craft and easy grasp on blues, folk and country traditions Made up of veteran musicians from Madison and Milwaukee, the Driveway Thriftdwellers draw upon their founding brothers’ Northwoods upbringing to create a no-nonsense blend of DIY classic country and Americana sensibilities. Earthy vocal harmonies and down-home pedal steel distinguish the group’s sound. The Thriftdwellers’ live shows feature a diverse mix of original music – ranging from sprawling odes about unspoiled landscapes to up-tempo bar anthems – and occasional tributes to everyone from Merle Haggard to The Replacements, all lovingly performed with just the right amount of North Country twang. 2016 saw the release of the band’s debut album, Cutover Country. "Madison’s deep Americana well just gushed more oil. Cutover Country, the first album from Driveway Thriftdwellers, is Southern rock with Northern heart." - Isthmus “Rugged, straightforward country songwriting…there’s a gentle sadness lurking in the group’s vocal harmonies and Ryan Knudson’s pedal steel.” –Tone Madison “(The band’s) affinity for storytelling is made loud and clear on Cutover Country…” – The Capital Times “Cutover Country (is) 11 tracks of hard-edged storytelling and escapist honkytonk with shades of Son Volt and Waylon Jennings.” – Shepherd Express “…a meld of classic bluegrass country fusion and garage music from the 60s and 70s.” – Maximum Ink Music Magazine
