Shotgun Wedding – that’s Broadway vocalist Catherine Porter and Billy Joel band members – is bringing its “city country” sound to Sands Point Preserve Oct. 24.
The Brooklyn-based band is trailblazing its way in the music scene, building up a fan base at its New York City, Long Island and out-of-town shows.
Shotgun Wedding’s songs touch on urban life, blending it with a blast of Bakersfield country, rock-n-roll antics and a dash of swing.
“The City-Country concept came from the fact that we are all New Yorkers who love and play classic country music,” band member Wade Preston told Broadway World. “Our style is a bit slick, all real monster players, and our stories are about the city instead of the country.”
Tickets to Shotgun Wedding are $60, and include an open bar, with a light menu featuring a cosmopolitan take on country classics – plus gourmet desserts by Philip Stone Caterers.
