You have discovered Po'Boy Local 151!
Just like our namesake sandwich, the Po'Boy Local 151 is a mixture of musical ingredients; tasty guitars, harmony vocals, upright bass and a whole lot of fun. Simple things mixed in just the right proportions become tasty. A union of great flavors if you will.
"There are just two kinds of music in the world. The Good Kind, and the Bad Kind. We play the Good Kind." Levon Helm
Made up of players from some of the Twin Cities most established Country, Bluegrass, Folk and Roots Rock bands, Po'Boy Local 151 combines professional players who all love American roots music.
The PoBoys are:
Chris Jones, Electric Guitar & Vocals
Ross Willits, Acoustic Guitar & Vocals
Dave Strahan, Pedal Steel Guitar
Eric Paulson, Upright Bass & Vocals
Catie Jo Pidel, Fiddle (when available)
Po'Boy Local 151 plays everything from Bob Wills swing numbers and Honky Tonk tearjerkers, Rockabilly classics to extended improvisational takes on Gillian Welch or Neil Young. Harmony singing a la the Louvin Bros, and great 50’s era guitar instrumentals like “Sleepwalk” and “Buckaroo”.
