The third act for the Townsend Park Stage, and next in our spotlight, is Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned.
An eight person indie folk collective founded in 2004, Sgt Dunbar and the Hobo Banned is a local act that is starting to make "significant strides on the national radar" according to Metroland's Best of the Capital Region 2009. A short review in the Chicago Sun-Times attests to that and describes the band's sound as "a gleeful, group-vocal approach that brought to mind a Salvation Army band playing in a junkyard while tripping on acid."
We are guessing that the reviewer was talking about Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned's passionate display of kinetic energy that is displayed in their live performances and that like their other shows we are going to see a jam-packed stage "populated by frenetic multi-instrumentalists who illustrate a controlled chaos of layered orchestrations."
So get excited and get ready to say you knew them when....
