John Holk and Carrie Shepard

 

continued

Only after the show did I discover that only one person on stage was both regularly in the band and playing his usual instrument--that being John Lang, the Sequins' steel pedal guitar player. "We're kind of like a jazz band in terms of our revolving lineup," Holk explained. Missing from the Sequin regulars were lead guitarist Erik Gustafson, bassist Alex Trajano, and drummer Todd Glass. Filling in for Gustafson was Gary Czabot, while Brian Ferriby subbed for Glass. Holk explained that he normally plays acoustic guitar and Shepard plays tambourine, but he'd taken over bass for the night, with Shepard playing acoustic. And even with all the changes, the band never missed a beat. So, kudos to their malleable musical abilities, and I can't wait to see who's playing what next time I see John Holk & the Sequins. One thing's for certain: the music will be full of twang and top-notch.

John Holk and Carrie Shepard return to town as the duo Some Velvet Evening for a show in the Crazy Wisdom Tea Room, Friday, October 14.    (end of article)
