"Bringing a little bit of the Big Easy to the Brew City, Sweet Sheiks is a toe-tapping five-some inspired by the popular music of the tens, twenties, and thirties. Led by the soulful vocals of Jen Müttin-Schrank (guitar/saw/washboard), this violin (Ousia Lydian), banjo (Garrett Burton), clarinet (Andrew Spadafora), tuba (Aaron Johnson) lineup brings a modern flair to early jazz, blues, and Americana classics. Sweet Sheiks’ acoustic stylings are compelling, diverting, and are best summed up in two words, “refreshingly vintage”.
