You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we welcome in The Dirty Middle. Led by Adrienne Smith, this collection of local musicians sure is something special. Plus, they bring the blues back to life with their original take on the genre, combining Adrienne’s powerful voice with some terrific guitar playing and a stone cold rhythm section that elevates everything to heights impressive to reach. On this episode, they perform their “Honey Bee” before sitting down to talk about what it’s like to be in a band with a spouse, how they all got together in the first place and what the blues means to them. They will be performing – live and in color! – this Friday at Cafe Nola and to learn more about the band, of course, you can check them out on Facebook here.
