Congress House All Stars (Day 11)

Welcome to Day 10 of the Indiegogo Campaign for The Shopkeeper: A Documentary about Mark Hallman and the Congress House. Every day during the campaign I am featuring a few artists who have recorded at the Congress House.

Drums & Tuba

Drums & Tuba was an alternative rock group from New York City (though the band was originally formed in Austin, Texas). Their sound fuses electronic rock, progressive rock, jazz and occasionally industrial. They were signed to Righteous Babe Records.

 The Duhks

Featuring banjo, fiddle, guitar, percussion, and vocals, The Duhks play a blend of Canadian and American soul, gospel, folk, old-time country string, Cajun zydeco, and Irish dance music. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, their music draws heavily on all of the North American musical traditions, while integrating Latin-influenced percussion as well as often Celtic- and Cajun-influenced fiddle-playing.

Flying Club

Taking off from Austin, Texas, The Flying Club performs an original mix of American, Brazilian and other pop music influences. A talented group of players propels The Flying Club’s fresh combination of soul, samba and funk: Vocalist Liz Morphis, guitarist Paul Mercurio, bassist Rudy Eccles and drummer Bruce Popky.
