Oakley Hall

Tuesday, April 22, at the Grog Shop.



Oakley Hall's six members come from all over the country. One's from Maryland, another hails from Florida, and one calls Mississippi home. No wonder they threw together various pieces of America on last year's I'll Follow You, a mash-up of styles and influences. It's also fitting that the band's music doesn't stick to a single genre. Oakley Hall doesn't play straight-up twang, but it would be a stretch to label the group Americana or even folk. The Brooklyn-based sextet makes old-fashioned rock and roll, fusing sounds from all over the place. Live, expect a sprinkling of decidedly un-rock-like instruments, such as violins, banjos, bongos, and lap-steel guitars.
