TIRE FIRE – Thursday, May 13
Tire Fire has been in development for a couple years, evolving into a wonderful Americana quintet. This was the first time many of us had seen this new and improved incarnation of the band, and they knocked us out. Most attendees were familiar with Trey Miller, banjo and harmonica; Dani Jaye, fiddle; and Sean Hartley, bass. They kept us moving with a varied set of Americana, bluegrass, five-part harmonies, and good-time music, including their “hit” single “Pile o’ Dust.” It was great to see and hear Arrie Bozeman, mandolin, from The Ain’t Sisters, and we enjoyed the “newcomer,” guitarist Jack Boyanton (especially when he was dancing and Hartley was watching his, uh, derriere!).
