Java Blend Broadcast: The Parish Festival 9/21

Aug 2, 2013

Tune in for the foot-stomping, body wriggling sounds of The Parish Festival.

 This Saturday at 2 PM, we'll broadcast a recent performance by The Parish Festival on "Java Blend."

Ben Kieffer will chat with the band throughout the broadcast to find out more about their trip back home to Iowa.

Featuring lead vocalist Jamey Cummins from the Hot Club of Davenport, The Parish Festival was formed in 2005 in Davenport, IA. Making up the band are Andy Rappel, Sara Ulloa, Kurt Lammers, and Jim Foster.

Performing an eclectic mix of gypsy jazz, country and pop music, The Parish Festival has a distinctly original and unforgettable sound. The group had performed successfully throughout the Midwest, even landing a song on the MTV show "Skins" before taking a short hiatus. At the beginning of 2012, the group reformed in Austin, TX with a new lineup, new energy, and a new passion for their music.
