Members of JEFF, Mumford & Sons, Old Crow and More to Form Salvador Dali Parton, Play Six Shows This Saturday



With All Hallows' Eve knocking at our door, now seems as good a time as any to get together with your friends and try something completely outlandish. Like, I dunno, say ... forming a band with four of your pals (all of whom play radically different types of music), naming yourself something ridiculous (a mash-up in the tradition of Guantanamo Baywatch), writing and rehearsing all of your material in two days, and playing six shows in one night.

That's precisely what the members of Salvador Dali Parton intend to do. According to a press release sent our way by local label Infinity Cat, SDP is a supergroup made up of Jake Orrall (JEFF the Brotherhood), Mike Harris (Apache Relay), Winston Marshall (Mumford & Sons), Justin Hayward-Young (The Vaccines) and Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), and they'll be performing six shows here in Nashville this Saturday, Oct. 26. Right on, sounds legit. But what does their material sound like? "We'd love to tell you," says the release. "But the band hasn't even practiced together yet." Further details:

They'll be writing their first songs on Thursday. Having their first full band rehearsal on Friday. And performing their first shows on Saturday. 6 shows to be exact.

Chances are that if you make it to a venue in Nashville on Saturday night, you'll have a pretty good chance of seeing the band performing.


What to expect? Here again. We just don't know. But it's going to be scary. And fun.

The band has already made plans to record all the gigs and thusly release a live album, compiling the best of the performances. With this many chances to perform, we should see some interesting results.

The release says that the six performances take place as follows: 6:45 p.m. at The High Watt; 8 p.m. at Exit/In; 9 p.m. at The Stone Fox; 9:45 p.m. at Springwater; 11 p.m. at Coyote Ranch (house show); and a sixth show to be announced day-of.

So, who plans on hitting all six shows? There will be some other good action in there. The High Watt performance is before My So-Called Band's Halloween blowout, J. Roddy Walston is headlining Exit/In, and Grooms and Jasmin Kaset will be at The Stone Fox. And what the hell will Salvador Dali Parton sound like? I think it'll be avant-garde country-hop.
