Coming up at the Tavern
The Eephus Band
Demolition String Band
“Demolition String Band’s members are across-the-board connoisseurs; master instrumentalists, lyricists and entertainers while Skye is a vocal treasure.” BILLBOARD MAGAZINE
With a shared passion for country roots, rock ‘n roll, bluegrass and mountain music, singer/songwriter Elena Skye (Chicago, IL) and multi-instrumentalist Boo Reiners (Charlotte, N.C.) front the NYC based Demolition String Band. They both started out young, taking lessons, slowing down classic recordings, jamming with anyone and everyone and playing in bluegrass bands. Their paths first crossed at an independent bookstore in Hoboken, N.J. co-owned and managed by Elena. Their after-hours jams at Blackwater Books and nearby pubs led them to form a band.
With a truly memorable and unique collection of songs, the Demolition String Band loves to thrill a sweaty dance floor with their dangerous rhythm section, or pick and sing old-school around a single microphone juggling banjo, mandolin and guitars while weaving rustic, taut harmony vocals with tall tales and truth, joy and heartbreak, despair and redemption.
