Luxuriant Sedans single to support Triad Musicians Matter
Upcoming shows you should check out
THE LUXURIANT SEDANS, SAMANTHA FISH, ZIGGY’S 170 W. 9TH ST., WINSTON-SALEM
The Luxuriant Sedans lay down some driving rock and blues anytime they take the stage. This band of hard-edge, veteran rockers from the Winston-Salem area put on the kind of show you would expect from this talented of a bunch. But they’re not only in it for the money. In addition to being some of the finest musicians in the area, these gentlemen know how to pay it forward. On the heels of the success of their first album, Born Certified, which is getting airplay across the globe thanks to the connectivity of the web and the solidity of the tunes, the band released this week a Christmas single, “Santa Claus Baby”.
“The song – a butt-rockin’ blues retooling of The Voices’ obscure R&B single from 1955 – is available for 99 cents on Amazon Digital Music, CD Baby and all other digital outlets,” writes bassist Ed Bumgardner, who in addition to his bass skills is a well-known music journalist. He wrote this week’s cover story on Baity’s. The band is joined on the single by Shelia Grady-Carlisle, known for her work with North Carolina blues band Arhooly.
All proceeds from the single will go to benefit Triad Musicians Matter, a nonprofit founded in 2010 that seeks to provide resources for local musicians if they fall on financial hardship.
“It is a charity near and dear to the hearts of the Sedans, and we hope each and every one of you will download the song, then tell your friends and family to do the same,” Bumgardner wrote on Facebook when announcing the single. “After all, it is the season for giving. And for less than a dollar, you can help some folks who spend their lives making YOU happy.
We are humbled and happy to help the cause. Visit www.triadmusiciansmatter.org to learn more.”
