Two Horses Too Many // Annie Ford Band

Doors at 9:00pm
Tickets: $10 adv/ $12 dos
Two Horses Too Many is the house band for “Smoked," a Spaghetti Western theater production at Café Nordo. Deep guitar twang, sweeping symphonic interludes and tight, driving grooves set the backdrop for songs about the Lone Ranger in all of us. That show is so much fun that the band continues on its own, playing original songs written in the great Spaghetti Western tradition. Our stage show is bathed in the cinematic glow of wide-screen projections. If we play our cards right, we might even get a visit from Jasper Dowd, The Man In Tight White Pants.
We feature Annastasia Workman on piano and accordion, Evan Mosher on vocals and trumpet, Dayton Allemann on guitar and flute, Matt Manges on drums, Ivan Molton on bass and sax, and Craig Corvin on guitar and 6 other instruments.
The Annie Ford Band is a timeless blend of tough and tender songwriting. Showcasing talented and nuanced players on pedal steel, bass, sax, piano, drums and violin they mix compelling story-telling with dark Appalachian roots and modern genres like rock n roll, jazz, and dark country. The sound will place you right outside of a rustic ghost-town, looking in as if from a distant keyhole. Their music will reach out to you like an old daguerreotype; it’s a cracked vision of the past that eerily taps into our modern age.
