Walla Faces is continuing with its diversity of sound program by presenting Angie and the Car Wrecks from Aberdeen, WA this Wednesday from 7-9pm. Angie and the Car Wrecks play rockabilly music with a Pacific Northwest twist.
The Car Wrecks’ main influences are the pioneers of classic rockabilly music, such as Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and of course, Johnny Cash. Other influences include Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, and more recently, the Chop Tops and the Reverend Horton Heat.
Angie are Car Wrecks are unique in that they are almost all family members. This gives them a tightness and synchrony that is more profound than what is found in other bands. The band is comprised of two brothers, Shawn Ball on the upright bass; Dale Ball on guitar; with their good friends Pigpen, on washboard, and Garrett, on harmonica; and Dale’s wife Angie Ball leading the pack and taking on vocals.
They are an extremely cohesive unit that never fails to entertain. They love to play music, which comes through in every performance.
The Car Wrecks have played throughout the West, opened for Grammy Award winning band Soul Asylum, and produced two albums. Angie and the Car Wrecks play at the Walla Faces Tasting Room Wednesday, July 18th from 7 to 9pm.
