I am trying to put together a band in the central New Jersey/greater tri-state area.
I call this kind of musical melange (alternately) ZydeFolk or Mars-iachi music. The names are somewhat interchangeable in my mind.
Here's basically where I'm at:
I play blues, but I am not a Chicago clone (in short, the "one" isn't always followed immediately by the "four" and the "five" consecutively).
I play folk, but I don't play enough trad for the traddies or enough neo-folk for the NPR crowd.
I sing Cajun music (I have family from the Gulf) and Tejano and Norteno music, but I don't pretend to have any more than a basic grasp of Spanish and a light dusting of pidgin French.
It's good-time music, ballads, blues and big fun. I play guitar, harmonica, rub-board, spoons, kazoo, and other various noisemakers.
Any takers? firstname.lastname@example.org, y'all.
