In Sarasota Magazine’s November issue, Cooper Levey-Baker acquaints us with some of Sarasota’s talented and unique local bands; here, we’re sharing some of their unique sounds.
Have Gun, Will Travel
First up: Have Gun, Will Travel. Have Gun produces the kind of music that Levey-Baker suggests Hank Williams and Bob Dylan would be proud of, “fleshed out with banjoes and harmonica.”

Sons of Hippies
Next: Sons of Hippies, who Levey-Baker describes as producing “aggressive guitar washes and ambient noise effects” with lead singer Katherine Kelly’s “passionate vocals.”

Bard and Mustache
Last but not least: Bard and Mustache, a duo made up Erin Murphy (from the band The Equines) and her fiancée Greg Bortnichak. Murphy sings to the sounds and arrangements Bortnichak puts together.
