Bottles & Cans

 Bottles & Cans

A shining light of Savannah's music scene for a decade,Bottles & Cans is known as a "blues band," yet this unpredictable group of immensely talented players and singers draws as well on the rich traditions of American folk, country and rock to create their raucous, swampy rave-ups and soulful ballads. "One of the most entertaining bands to watch in this town, these guys hardly shift from their spots on stage, but it's the mixture of intense concentration and seemingly effortless flippancy with which they ply their rotgut, Tom Waits-inspired trash can blooze rawk swing that is mesmerizing. They get down deep into their grab bag of originals & obscure songs, and don't come up until they've had their way with them." -Connect Savannah.
