You don’t have to be from the south to feel a deep connection with country music. We learn from its stories and its musicianship inspires us with its earthiness and dazzling technicality. The members of Shotgun Wedding aren’t from the South. They’re some of New York City’s finest professional musicians who put a band together out of reverence for country music’s lineage, and out of a desire to further the tradition. On Shotgun Wedding’s recently released debut, South Of Somewhere, the quintet reimagines country’s genre geography with swaggering musicianship and honest accounts of city living. Shotgun Wedding draws from a wellspring of country, Americana, alt-country, rock n’ roll, and the boogie-and-stride piano tradition. With reverent intentions and restless creativity, the five-piece band has boldly settled its own authentic homestead. The group boasts five very individual and accomplished songwriters and lead vocalists, and sumptuous four-voice harmony passages. Shotgun Wedding is Dennis DelGaudio, guitar/vocals/bandleader; Wade Preston, piano/vocals; Catherine Porter, vocals; Andy Cichon, bass/vocals; and Chuck Burgi drums. The quintet has the rare distinction of being full-time acclaimed musicians with impressive resumes pursuing a passion project out of sheer love of the music, their chemistry as a creative unit, and the deep bond of friendship they share.
