Alt-country acoustic duo And The Neighbors play their first show at the brewery Friday, July 8 from 5-7 pm.
And The Neighbors is an acoustic duo inspired by the sounds of Appalachia blended with the sonic grit of the Lower East Side. Debra DeMuth’s voice with an emotive, old-time resonance is featured vocally and Dave Houghton (of indie-rock groups, Fancy Trash and The Reejers), adds a dissonant vocal harmony along with his well-mastered guitar playing which can sway between delicate to furious in an instant. Banjo, mandolin, autoharp, cigar box guitar, piano and organ, as well as chains and cello fill out their alt-country, folk-pop sound. Each And The Neighbors song offers something to say about love or life. The words are earnest, the vocals are raw yet beautiful and the melodies are their own.
