Ubangi Stomp Club Presents
& in association with 103.2 Dublin City FM
Ubangi Stomp Club are delighted to welcome back Petunia on his solo return visit to Ireland.
One of Canada’s most lauded new bands, Petunia and the Vipers have been joined on stage by Exene Cervenka from punk roots legends X and Phil Alvin of Blasters fame on recent shows. For this show, Petunia is touring solo playing new takes on old time classics, and new songs with practised old time ethos. With a smidge of ragtime, some dixieland jazz, with a hint of bebop jazz, some Western swing and old fashioned cowboy music, some jug band and string band music.
Petunia’s music grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go. His singing ranges from the most delicate you’ve ever heard to the most powerful, often within a single song. With a piercing gaze, he will look into the collective soul of the audience, and launch into some high and lonesome vocals that conjure up the ghost of Jimmie Rodgers. His tapping boot will propel you into a snarling fire and brimstone rave-up as a wave of frantic jitterbuggers compete for space on the hardwood dance floor…hillbilly-flavoured-swing inflected-ragtime-goodtime-thunderously rolling-one-of-a-kind-you-don’t-want-to-miss-this-sort-of-a-show.
