Black Jake & the Carnies sets fierce murder ballads and cautionary tales to the beat of an old-time string band. The Ypsilanti septet''s unique blend of Americana, Bluegrass and punk (dubbed "Crabgrass") sets a raucous pace for original songs about loup-garous and banjo-pickin'' demoniacs. Their ten song debut record, "Where the Heather Don''t Grow" was recorded and mixed by Jim Roll in his Ann Arbor, MI studio.
When Black Jake howls for blood, and the Carnies rattle their fiddles and banjos, board the windows and grab the whiskey, cuz'' the night is long, the band is tight, and no one gets out alive.
