The Obsoleets, a favorite Media band featuring Parris Bradley and John Stovicek, will perform at 2nd Saturday on September 13th at the Franklin Mint, State and Olive Streets at 7:00PM. The Obsoleets perform folk, blues, ballads and more with a wide variety of traditional acoustic instruments including tenor guitar, mandolin, ukulele, upright bass, banjo and accordion, and the intriguing Chinese erhu. Their music is inspired by a century-deep catalog of blues, jazz & folk songs revamping them in their own inimitable style. From modern takes on arcane Americana to rootsy reworkings of contemporary songs, band members John Stovicek, Parris Bradley, Steven Patrick Smith, Bill Hayward, Alex Uskaraitis, Leon Barton, and Qin Qian add a distinctive touch to everything they do. They have played at the Community Arts Center, Burlap and Bean and at the Media Blues Stroll. At the Mainstay in Rock Hall, MD they were the band for renowned bluesman Lonnie Shields. The Media Arts Council and the businesses of State Street sponsor 2nd Saturday. Please visit our website mediaartscouncil.org for more information.
The Media Arts Council works to further its mission to actively support local artists and integrate a wide range of arts into the life of the entire community.
