Blue Ribbon Healers

Mock Crest Tavern welcomes The Blue Ribbon Healers. The performance beings at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 27th. They bring an “old-timey swanky tonk” sound to the music scene.

The Blue Ribbon Healers have played full-time over the last 4 years and traveled from coast to coast. Their sound encompasses a string band sound, which draws from the old-time jazz of New Orleans. They offer original material, and a strong foundation with a mix of ethnic and folk flavors that come together as one.

Members Include:

  • Rob Pate – guitar and vocals
  • Cindy Rose – mandolin and vocals

This is their third annual cross-country tour and  includes 15 shows in California, 10 in Colorado and a run up the Mississippi River, all in just under 2 months. For the fall, winter, and spring, the Blue Ribbon Healers perform at home in Panama City Beach, Florida.

Their music compares to the Red Stick Ramblers, The Devil Makes Three, Tom Waits, and Frank Zappa.

Here’s a few words from the press concerning The Blue Ribbon Healers:

“Looking like a trio of Appalachian hippies, The Blue Ribbon Healers provide an old-timey sound with a swanky infusion of honky-tonk. The Devil Makes Three with less devil and more saintly sentiment, this guitar, stand-up bass, and mandolin trio (with the occasional kazoo) has been wowing crowds across the country, inspiring the lame to dance and the weak to be strong. With a wide selection of songs lamenting and celebrating the finer things in life, the band loves to partake in ceremonious medicating—so be sure to pass it around!”

Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
