Live music by According to Bazooka (folk pop) /// 7 pm /// no cover /// all ages

First Street Cafe offers up a delightful evening of catchy folk pop music with vintage vibes by Sacramento band According to Bazooka.

Up for for two Sacramento News & Review 2020 SAMMIES awards (folk/bluegrass & Singer Songwriter), According to Bazooka’s vibrant indie-folk-pop infused sound blurs the lines of rock, folk, blues, jazz, pop and zydeco. Their unique show features well-crafted tunes, rich harmonies and irresistible "retro-pop" melodies.

This fusion of sound grew out of the original instrumentation of the band which included an accordion and a bouzouki, hence the name According to Bazooka. Band members Don Johnston, Jamie Knapp, René Martucci, and Richard Urbino bring together a varied group of influences that draws heavily from the classic Bay Area, California sound. 

Their unique vintage instruments always grab the attention of the audience both visually and sonically. It is quite inventive to find an accordion, upright bass, and random percussion instruments, mixed with elegant 3 part vocal harmonies. 

An amazing art of storytelling lifts According to Bazooka to an even higher place. They write songs that every listener can relate to while happily swaying along. Catchy, singable songs with an ‘easy come, easy go’ perspective on the absurdities of life that we all share. 

With three full length albums already released (Easy Come, Easy Go (2015), Where We Are Now (2017), and The Devil's in the Details(2019), According to Bazooka is heading back to Moon Studio with David Houston in 2020 to work on a brand new record. Prepare to open your mind and ears for the fun explosion of sound that is According to Bazooka.
