Each week during Repeat It Or Delete It Season Three, I’m featuring local/regional bands/musicians.  Please meet "The Barking Owls" from Kimberly, Idaho:

The Barking Owls plays an original blend of music, drawing from pop, folk, rock, country, and bluegrass. The band's diversity of styles is reflected in the variety of instruments used to support their literate hooks and vocal harmonies, including guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, harmonica, and various percussive instruments. The Barking Owls is currently working on their first recording project.

The Barking Owls have a very cool sound and very unique.  Which is why I think I enjoy their music so much.  Actually, they pegged themselves as "Grunge-Grass."  Sounds like something illegal to me, but I like it!

"The Barking Owls" is a four-piece:

  • Erik Wenninger vocals, guitar
  • Andy Cluff banjo, mandolin, vocals
  • Adam Crofts bass, upright bass, vocals
  • Karl Sloth drums, percussion
  • And the co-song writer, who shall remain name-less.

See them for yourselves at Cucina Gemelli's in Twin Falls this Saturday...check out all their show dates here.

The first time I saw "The Barking Owls" in action was at Beer Fest last month.  I was drunk and inappropriate and they were really good!  :-)
