ABOUT THE ARTIST
Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=wiGQEZP5A8MBarbaro’s music is at once lively and intimate, perfect for twirling around the dance floor or cooking with someone you love. The Minneapolis-Winona quartet have built momentum around their dynamic sound, each set flowing naturally between energetic jams and contemplative interludes. Their upcoming album, due out spring 2019, showcases their captivating songwriting, layered over textures pulled from bluegrass, jazz, pop, and country-western.
Barbaro has performed at premier Midwest music festivals including Blue Ox, Boats & Bluegrass, and MBOTMA. In 2018, the band released their first EP and claimed two contest wins, at the John Hartford Memorial Festival Band Contest and MBOTMA’s Americana Roots Band Contest.
ALSO FEATURINGPETE JIVE
Performing live since 2002, Pete Jive has been spreading the message of self affirmation and compassion throughout the greater Chicagoland area. Pete Jive provides a feel-good show every time, diffusing positivity and spreading good vibrations nightly to their rapidly growing fan base. His first LP, No Sign of Regret, was released June 2011. This record features elements of traditional American folk music, roots reggae, and rock 'n' roll, which have shaped Pete Jive's sound and direction from the start. It was the first album to showcase Pete Jive's "old country picking style and youthful wisdom", as Josh Hisle from Neil Young's Vapor Records put it. In April 2012, Pete was signed to Josh Hisle's new record label V.R.C. records, recording the EP "Sleep When I Die" for the label's debut release. After touring there and back across the country, Pete is in the studio again. He is now joining on guitar and co-leading vocals with the Chicago Group, JDR & the Broadcast for their Sophomore EP. This is in addition to preparing his 3rd solo collection for a 2020 release.
