Ellis Dyson & The Shambles
Ellis Dyson & The Shambles
"Ellis Dyson & the Shambles expertly blends old-time influences
ranging from Piedmont murder ballads, to traditional jazz, to big band
swing. The result: whiskey-soaked, foot-stompin’ songs that bring
party music of departed eras to crowds both young and old. The
Shambles have made waves with their theatrical and explosive live
shows and masterful musicianship that electrifies every audience.
Bursting with exuberance and effortless expertise, this playfully
hootin’ and hollerin’ act is guaranteed to bring the ruckus.

Ellis Dyson & the Shambles consists of Ellis Dyson (banjo, vocals),
Eli Wittmann (acoustic guitar), Adam Maloney (upright bass) Danny
Abrams (soprano/alto/baritone saxophones, vocals), and Danny Grewen
(trombone, vocals). The band has come together through a series of
fortuitous meetings in Chapel Hill, N.C. Beginning as a saxophone and
banjo duo, the band has grown into a freight train string band with a
flashy horn section."
