Rear Window Listening Room Saturday March 7, 2015 107 E. Menefee Avenue / Ganado Texas Dinner & Show $27 Doors Open at 7:00 Show Only $15 Doors Open at 7:30 Curtain: 8:00
The Love Leighs combine the ukulele strums and stunning voices of Raina Leigh and Jessica Leigh, at times angelic and sultry, with the side-man stylings of guitar star Jimmie Dreams and the formidable Josh Flowers' upright bass to play award-winning, "new-timey" 20th Century American roots music.
You'll think you've heard their songs before, though they are as fresh as the band's on-stage banter. Their tightly threaded two- and three-part harmonies, lively grooves, and Vaudevillian flair have been featured in world-wide syndication on the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, as well as on the foremost uke-centric web hub, UkuleleHunt.com.
"Ordinary" would not be the word to use to describe any bands that specialize in the art of old-time styles, be it hot jazz, ragtime, gypsy or old-school country. However, your humble Austin Music Minute maven is always compelled to point out that The Love Leighs is not your ordinary old-timey band. There's a touch of the contemporary within. As a matter of fact, they would go so far as to call it "new-timey" music embracing the traditional sounds of early roots. They're the perfect combination of old jazz, blues, and plenty of twang with wicked three-part harmonies and a dash of devious drama. You cannot resist. Bring in a little Vaudevillian swagger and keep the humor on the twisted side.

If you really love music, and find yourself sometimes wishing you had some friends who loved it even half as much as you, then you have come to the right place. The Rear Window audience is comprised, primarily, of music lovers who really enjoy being able to hear the performers play their music without the usual noise that keeps you from being able to hear much of the songs. We present a wide variety of music styles or genres, and artists who write and perform their own music.
Most of the music is considered "Americana" which really means, country, alternate rock, rockabilly, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, jazz, funk, folk, and just about anything else you can imagine. Because music has largely to do with personal taste, you will like some of our shows better than others, but we guarantee that you will always be glad you came.
You can probably imagine the vast number of singer-songwriters and performers who pitch their music to record companies each and every day. Yet, a record company typically has only one or two people who choose the artists they will push to stardom. So, as you can see, it is very likely that record companies pass up some of the best music you will Never Hear. That means some of the Best Music never hits the radio or television, because it doesn't get the very costly promotions that record companies invest in "Their Choices."
At the Rear Window Listening Room, you will hear some of the best music you have ever heard, performed by artists who are extremely talented and have devoted their lives to creating and playing music. We also have some artists who are either on the verge of making it big or have already started down that road and still take time to come by the Rear Window. Susan Gibson has written a single that sold 14 million copies (that's a lot), and Sean Ashby, coming in April, has four multi-platinum records to his credit. Richard Smith, coming June 9th, is hailed as the one of the World's Greatest finger-picking guitarists, ever; and Actor & singer-songwriter Ronny Cox (the guitar player at the beginning of the movie "Deliverance") comes to the Rear Window regularly. So, plan to come to the Rear Window Listening Room and join us for some fabulous music and overall excellent entertainment.
