5 Cent Coffee, Three Drink Circus, The Sweet Trade at Ivy Room
5 Cent Coffee
5 Cent Coffee is a 3 piece post modern jug band full of grit and carnival hokum. We play original songs set in the dusty American tradition of traveling circuses and rail riders down on their luck. With soaring vocals, sometimes two accordions, sometimes two ukuleles, washboard and junk percussion, our sound is big and brash but soft and mournful, and always compelling.
Three Drink Circus
One or two or even three ukuleles sometimes but also accordion, washboard, musical saw, and sidewalk junk. We write a mean (really mean!) murder ballad but we also deliver sweet, shivery harmonies and genre-busting covers.
The Sweet Trade
A rousing and roguish pair of performers
Playing songs of their own and their own takes on others
Plucking and strumming and bowing quite gaily
Instruments ending in 'lin and 'ulele
