The Randy Bandits: Golden Arrow

The Randy Bandits from Brookyn are the kind of band who will make you want to buy friends lots of beer tasting the health of the musicians. Brass, harp and honky tonk piano come tumbling out of your speakers. Frontman Jim Knable writes catchy melodic tunes straight out The Band legacy, a hard act to follow, but he pulls it off.

The new full length Golden Arrow is a bull's eye shot that deserves a prominent place on the shelf marked Americana extraordinaire. The album was mixed and engineered Bryce Goggin (Phish, Pavement). They have honed their sound with care and dwevelopped themselves into one of todays best sounding "bar" bands who should be playing theaters and mid-sized venues real soon.
