Petunia & The Vipers

Event Details

Louis Armstrong was once asked what his favourite kind of music was, and his response was simple; “Good music”! Petunia & the Vipers’ sound may not sit comfortably in one certain genre, but “Good Music” describes it well.

Hank Williams on acid… Tom Waits meets Elvis at Woody Guthrie’s Hobo junction… Avant-Country nightclub scene music… One of the best bands in the world today, of any kind… hillbilly-flavoured-swing inflected-ragtime-goodtime-thunderously rolling-one-of-a-kind-you-don’t-want-to-miss-this-sort-of-a-show… New music that springboards off of music of the past and jumps into the present day left with only echoes of the past… Something in between the 1920s and steampunk. It’s good for your mind… These are just a few of the words uttered by folks around the globe trying to pin down a description of all that is Petunia & The Vipers.

A modern musical enigma, Petunia the man (acoustic guitar, vocals) is joined by his decade-long bandmates Jimmy Roy (Lapsteel, vocals), Stephen Nikleva (electronic guitar), Joseph Lubinsky (upright bass, vocals), and Paul Townsend (drums). Together, they create sound and switch gears from elements of country, blues, rock, Mexicana, jazz, punk and folk music. Part old-time, part cutting edge new time, part of the wave of the future – and timeless.
