Music Scene: Eilen Jewell Band, more
What does a T-Mobile commercial and TV shows “Sons of Anarchy” and “True Blood” have in common with musician Eilen Jewell and her band?
Both have featured the Idaho native’s music on their soundtracks.
And both actor Tom Hanks and British Prime Minister David Cameron have praised Jewell’s music in the media.
The Eilen Jewell Band will perform its blend of early blues, rockabilly, surf-noir, and ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll on Wednesday, March 26, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave. Doors will open for this sold-out show at 7 p.m., and the show will start at 7:30 p.m.
“Eilen Jewell is the queen of the minor key. Sad songs are her wealth and finery,” according to her bio at eilenjewell.com.
The band — instrumentalist Jerry G. Miller, Jewell’s husband and drummer Jason Beek, and upright bass player Johnny Sciascia — released the album titled “Queen of the Minor Key,” featuring a song with the same name, in 2011. She and her band tour relentlessly, regularly selling out venues around the world, the bio said.
