Bull’s Tavern (408 W. 4th St. Winston-Salem)
Thursday Oct. 20 9 p.m.
“One day not that long ago Sean-Patrick found a sound repeating in his head. It did not take long for him to realize that if this sound did not escape he may go crazy. This started the musical journey that brings us here. Sean-Patrick started off bringing this sound to the masses with just his guitar, banjo and voice. He was performing as a solo artist and found that limited the depth of this new sound. So the hunt began.
Paul Dolak was brought into the fold. Paul had most recently been playing with a local metal band (victims arent we all) and had played previously with regional country cover band 60 inch slick. His bass style is heavily influenced by his extensive six string guitar background as well. He brings a flavor to this band that would be difficult to replicate. Paul is just as fluent and comfortable on his electric 6 string bass as he is on his stand up bass.
Being a “Newgrass” Band we knew that there needed to be an electric guitar presence. A few players were tried and although there were talented players among them one stood out head and shoulders above the rest. Christopher Beiswanger was no stranger to Sean-Patrick. Matter of fact they grew up in the same neighborhood and even attended boy scouts together. Christopher brings a style and sound with him that one can only describe as soul filled. Christopher comes from a rather eclectic musical background having played with local favorites Shotgun jubilee and in a Pink Floyd Tribute.
No band is complete without a percussionist. Kyle Hessinger comes to us from a completely different angle. He has a musical talent that cannot be ignored. The beats laid down are not only tasteful but also driving at the same time. His driving tempos keep this train on the tracks and moving right along. The chemistry, musically, with our complete rhythm section allows for a level of musicality few get to enjoy.
If you are looking for something soulful and real, something sad and true, or just something to help you enjoy your day then look no further. Here is SEAN-PATRICK and the NEWGRASS REVOLUTION! Sean Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution.”
