Steve Kaul & The Brass Kings visit Freewheelin'

Tune in to Freewheelin' Wednesday, February 1 as host Jackson Buck welcomes Steve Kaul & The Brass Kings to the KFAI studios. The band will be performing live and also play an advance track from their upcoming new release to debut on the show.

The Brass Kings consist of Steve Kaul (guitar and vocals), Mikkel Beckmen (washboard and other odd percussion instruments), and Brad Ptacek (washtub bass). Their songs, written by Kaul, range from the darkly comical ("Rural Methlab Blues") to the poignant ("When the Springtime Comes"), with Middle Eastern influences occassionally surfacing ("Lead Foot" and "Dynaflow").....displays a disarming wit and charm reminiscent of the Front Porch Swingin' Liquor Pigs.
