The Uncas always entertain. Depending on the song you may find Sook hanging from the rafters, John skil-sawing an acoustic guitar, or Futch flying through the air. These are not your average cowpokes; these guys are full of piss and vinegar, and they RAWK! Young and old, people are attracted to the stage when The Uncas break out their extremely original brand of cowpunk alt-country. While they are adept at the art of putting on a show, this group is no one-trick pony, they also put powerfully crafted songs on the table.
Drawing comparisons to Ween, The Band, and Primus, The Uncas always remain true to their C & W influences (Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings) while adding an intense raw energy (a la early Rolling Stones) and frenetic jams. All five members sing, and each member can play any instrument on the stage. This versatility adds excitement and freshness to their maniac performances. With four songwriters in the band The Uncas never run out of original songs to sing, they have over forty of them!
After three years of touring Canada, The Uncas have attempted to fully realize their rare sound and have succeeded with Sunny Uncas, their brand new release. The thematic disc includes 18 tracks and a full 74 minutes of good times and stellar songwriting.
