Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Wordplay? Check.
Catchy tunes? Check.
Damn the traffic, get in the van attitude? Check.
Social conscience, but also a sense of humor? Check.
Impish smile? Check.
Banjo? Sometimes.

Nobody subscribes to the ‘folk music comes in all shapes and sizes’ ethos more than Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. Prone to both rockin’ out and folkin’ out, Thao and her band enchant unsuspecting audiences on a regular basis. In short, they are the perfect soundtrack to a day at the shore, whether in Newport, RI or Santa Monica, CA.

– Martin Fleischmann
