BLUES AND BARBECUE: featuring LUXURIANT SEDANS & HARVEY DALTON ARNOLD
Luxuriant Sedans is a brand new band from the fertile musical stomping grounds of the North Carolina Piedmont.
The band’s five members – Mike “Wezo” Wesolowski (vocals, harp); Ed Bumgardner (bass, vocals); Rob Slater (guitar); Gino Grandinetti (guitar) and Bob Tarlton (drums) are veteran musicians with experience in myriad musical genres – from alternative music to country-rock to jazz, vintage soul and rock ‘n’ roll in all its forms and guises.
The common ground for their backgrounds is blues – but The Luxuriant Sedans is no typical fedora-wearing, licks-off-of-records blues band.
Rather, the band’s deep musical versatility takes the blue soul in its music and adds an element of rock ‘n’ roll energy that celebrates taste and individuality.
HARVEY DALTON ARNOLD
Harvey Dalton Arnold is a singer, guitarist and North Carolina-native who has a passion for the blues. He sold millions of albums as a member of southern-rock band The Outlaws from 1976-80 and has played at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. Harvey performs a left-handed finger-picking style and slide playing on electric and acoustic guitars. Though he made a career of electric rock, his roots are in bluegrass and old country from his upbringing in eastern North Carolina. In 2005, Harvey was diagnosed with head, neck and tongue cancer. After a year of treatment, his health recovered along with his passion for music. He taught himself to talk and sing again, returning to the music of his childhood: the blues.
