PA bluegrass group Cabinet to perform Tues.
Penn State Hazleton’s 2011-2012 Cultural Events Series continues on Tues., Nov. 15 with the Pennsylvania bluegrass group Cabinet performing at 7 p.m. in the Slusser/Bayzick Building. The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
Combining a penchant for bluegrass-inflected instrumentation and a knack for extending selections into crowd-pleasing jams, Cabinet is becoming more popular as they reach more and more listeners. Performing at clubs, theaters and festivals, the group has earned a reputation as a live act that should not be missed. And now, with the release of a live album on Ropeadope Records the Cabinet experience is available to everyone.
Formed in 2006, the sextet is comprised of J.P. Biondo on mandolin and vocals, Pappy Biondo on banjo and vocals, Mickey Coviello on acoustic guitar and vocals, Todd Kopec on fiddle and vocals, Dylan Skursky on double bass and electric bass, and Jami Novak on drums and percussion.
Cabinet’s music might have its roots in the past, but it is current and vibrant, with a sense of celebrating the now.
