Sausage Grinder Concert — June 15th

BOB STANE SAYS: I have been trying to book Sausage Grinder for 5 years and finally got them. Let us make sure you are there and that they come back.

Sausage Grinder is Los Angeles’ classic old-time and country blues band. They combine the traditional sounds of fiddle and banjo breakdowns with the low-down sound of country blues, topped off with a touch of ragtime and hillbilly jazz. The versatile acoustic ensemble features fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, jug, washboard, and a few odds and ends. Sausage Grinder’s performances have been described as “reminiscent of an old Mickey Mouse cartoon” and as “visceral and joyous – a blast from the past with a nod to the immediacy of the future!”

The members of Sausage Grinder: Chris Berry, guitar/banjo/vocals; David Bragger, fiddle/mandolin/banjo; Susan Platz, fiddle/banjo/washboard/vocals; Timothy Riley, jug/washboard/jaw harp/saw/bagpipes/mouth harp/mandolin/guitar/vocals; Pat Mac Swyney, tenor banjo/mandolin.

Sausage Grinder has performed at the Berkeley Old-Time Music Convention, the Portland Old-Time Gathering, the Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Contest, the Los Angeles Old-Time Social and recently appeared at the Gainsborough Old-Time Festival in the United Kingdom. Members of the band have also taught workshops at many festivals including the renowned Blues Week and the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Washington.
