We are an acoustic 3-piece group of seasoned musicians with a passion for song & performance. Dobro, acoustic guitar, and upright bass are the backdrop for sweet three part harmonies that tell a story or paint a picture for listeners. Though we pride ourselves on our original material, we also play cover only events, gladly learning specific material for shows. We can be backdrop instrumental, bluegrass, re-worked pop/rock songs, or take hold of a night with our original material. Catering to an event is part of our joy. Having no drums, our volume is easily adjustable; we can play truly acoustic in a corner, bring amps and a PA to bring the party, or dial it all in to perform remotely.
Black Partridge members James, Dan, and Barrett have been playing the music scene in the heart of Roger's Park for 20+ years. Each has toured with bands nationally, and had even been in bands together before - but never like this. Focused on song, harmony, and performance, Black Partridge has raised the bar for themselves. Dan on acoustic guitar, who had toured with national act (America's Got Talent) Sarah Potenza, brings a storyteller/americana/folk sound to the band. James on dobro, formerly of Outlaw Family Band & The Henhouse Prowlers, brings a gritty outlaw country twang merged with traditional bluegrass. Barrett on upright bass, having toured with members of Funkadelic and performs regularly with members of Timbuk 3, brings a funk-rock leaning into dirt blues to the band. That diversity keeps the energy going with a 'what comes next' curiosity for listeners. All these sounds framed within acoustic instruments with three sweetly blended voices, make Black Partridge stand out as a unique modern take on a tried and true soundscape - variations of Americana.
