Hey Mavis

Hey_Mavis_400px.jpgFavorites at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival last summer, the Americana band Hey Mavis has quickly gained a solid and passionate fan base for their music, which blends jazz, bluegrass, old-time, folk, and a touch of rock ‘n’ roll. Laurie Michelle Caner (banjo, vocals) writes the majority of the songs, with lyrics that tell the story of life—with all of its beauty, heartache, disappointment, and joy. Joining her are Eddie Caner (violin, viola profunda, vocals), Bryan Thomas (bass, Chank-o-matic 6000, vocals), Anthony Taddeo (cajon, vocals).

 

“Marvelous … This is a charming—and serious—banjo-driven sound … adds up to rocking Appalachian music from Akron, Ohio.” - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
