  • Biography A cabaret band that combines virtuosic central European violin technique with 1920s/30s jazz and Yiddish theatre, the Sour Mash Hug Band evokes an era that never quite existed. Paris in the 30s, Harlem in the 20s, New Orleans in the 90s, its hard to say. The band is especially known for their original tunes reminiscent of Kurt Weill and Danny Elfman. The band started in Eugene, OR 10 years ago as an old-time band with the classic line-up of claw-hammer banjo, fiddle, guitar, and bass. After a couple years in Eugene they took to the road, and toured the country by bike, freight train, hitchhiking, and a broken down old van. This took them to San Francisco, Bellingham, New York and finally to New Orleans which became their home away from home. For the past five years the band has split their time between a quiet spot by Lake Merritt and a couple of less quiet shotgun shacks in New Orleans, while spending summers in Romania and Hungary studying the music they love. Being exposed to many varieties of music in their travels the musicians have developed a unique cabaret style drawing on New Orleans jazz, muzica lautareasca, and Yiddish theatre.

  • Biography 'A Tincture of Junkyard Folk and Steampunk Jazz'. Professor Gall seeks to uncover the contradictions of an ambiguous and native-less society, 'dreaming the existentialists' dream', while at the same time pleading for individualism, peace, and more fun at funerals. The Portland, Oregon conglomerate starts with Drew Norman on vocals, guitar, percussion stomp box and banjo, who brings his theatrical experience to the musical stage and is responsible for the initial musical and lyrical embellishments. Drew’s recent side roles include the ‘Husband’ in the stage and movie version of Sally Tomato’s TOY ROOM(Severe Enterprises), a rock opera that won accolades from The Heart of England Film Festival, among others. He is also commissioned by other musical luminaries on stage and in the studio from Chris Robley’s Fear of Heights Orchestra (Cutthroat Pop Records) to Jeff Hanson (Kill Rock Stars Records). Scott Johnston heads up the first chair position for the horn section, arranging charts and providing his saxophone alchemy. Rounding out the ensemble is Monte Skillings on trombone, Todd Burba on clarinet and accordion, Sean Hudson on stand-up bass, Jake Pegg on tuba, and Andrew Clarinet on the.…ahem…clarinet. Critical acclaim for their first full length CD ‘Intravenous Delusion’ has enabled Professor Gall to become a regional favorite, sharing the stage with semi-national/national acts like The Devil Makes Three, Eric McFadden Trio, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Billy Nayer Show, Vagabond Opera, the Dandy Warhols and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum at venues throughout the West Coast as well as festivals and conventions like the Folklife Festival (Seattle,WA), Gearcon (Portland,OR), Teslacon (Madison,WI) and Steamcon( Bellevue, WA). The band released in March of 2010 their sophomore release entitled ‘The Psychology of Booze and Guilt’ to rave reviews. Professor Gall was recently featured by Seattle’s City Arts Magazine as the Portland, Oregon representative of the National Steampunk Movement, along with the Dresden Dolls (Boston), Abney Park (Seattle) and Unwoman(San Francisco).
