The Oblations

October 28

Ellis Dyson & the Shambles expertly blends old-time influences ranging
from Piedmont murder ballads, to Dixieland, 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), Nathan
Huvard (acoustic guitar), Jonathan Ng (fiddle), Adam Maloney (upright bass)
Danny Abrams (soprano/alto/baritone saxophones, vocals), and Matt Hall
(trumpet, 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
