CIGAR Box blues STOMP Santa Ana
For Immediate Release: 11-11-11
The Art and Music of the Cigar Box Guitar
Santa Ana – Southern California’s premiere cigar box guitar blues band, The Budrows, is set to kick it up a notch on December 3, from 6 pm to 11 pm, when the trio hosts a CD release party and art show where fans can win a custom made cigar box guitar.
The Budrows feature the father/daughter combo of Jason Farthing and the young Argentine vocal phenom Macarena Rivera, accompanied by veteran flute and harpman Jesse Boden. Three other artists including Bob Hoard, Cris Portillo and Josh Gayou will join Farthing in displaying their cigar box guitars and artwork at the event. A drawing for the cigar box guitar and other prizes will be held at 9pm to celebrate the release of The Budrows NEW record entitled, 100% Foot Stompin’ Cigar Box Rock N’ Roll.
The Budrows have been steadily expanding their southland following with an infectious foot-stompin’ (Farthing doubles on rhythm) brand of hill country blues. Vocalist Rivera lures audiences with her deep, exotic range, soulful instinct and stunning grace and presence well beyond her 18 years. The veteran chops of harpman Jesse Boden bring experience and the unexpected woodwind element to form a powerful and unique blues experience in the tradition of the American masters of the genre. Sure as molasses is slow, this band has the ability to transform any venue into a bonafide deep south juke joint, complete with a foot-stompin’, testifyin’ audience full of revelers having themselves a modern good time in an old fashioned style.
