We all carry the Roosevelt Dime. It’s not a relic of the past; it’s the silver in your pocket. There was a time when Appalachian strings made romance with New Orleans rhythms, a love affair that yielded one of the most infectious beats the world had ever heard. For Roosevelt Dime that time is now. Some would call it Rock & Roll, others Americana, but “Mardi-Grass” is more like it… a bedrock of New Orleans rhythms that brings driving, melodic banjo, fat-back blues guitar, pure honky-tonk harmonies, and deliciously dirty R&B vocals along for the ride… it makes for a groove so inspired the New York Times has called Roosevelt Dime “a perpetual crowd pleaser.”
“The perfect mix of talent and showmanship to make the audience feel they’re witnessing something special, …one of those gems that sound better even live than they do on record.” –Poppy Galloway, Feast of Music (July 2014)
“Sizzling… Their live shows are kinetic and energetic.” –Michael Witthaus, Hippo Press (Apr 2014)
