Date: Friday, May 17 2019
Time: 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM
The Lowdown Drifters are a Country band from Stanwood, WA formed in 2015 from a shared love of songwriting with the goal of fostering and furthering the tradition of country music. The Drifters began building a fan base and core group of original songs leading up to the 2016 release of their album Wood & Water. In the past several years the Drifters have gone from writing and playing their original songs for friends to playing at venues such as the Tractor Tavern, Hard Rock Café, Little Red Hen, and Ponderosa Lounge as well as functions for local radio stations supporting the Seattle Seahawks and festivals including the Spur Festival and Festival of the River. As they head back into the studio in the spring of 2018 to begin recording additional songs for their follow up release, they have had the opportunity to play with Chase Rice, Chris Knight, Shane Smith and the Saints, Jason Boland, Cody Canada, and Leanne Rimes and continue to play shows in an ever increasing circuit creating new fans wherever they play.
"Comanche Moon" is a term that originated on the Texas frontier during the Comanche wars. According to journalist S. C. Gwynne, "So many raids were made by moonlight that in Texas a full, bright spring or summer moon is still known as a Comanche Moon."* Blending the sounds and influences of their native Texas Panhandle, Comanche Moon has developed a unique sound that the band describes as "Texicana." Rooted in strong original songwriting, their sound carries influences of country, blues and folk music, delivered with a rock and roll attitude.
