Serving up some spicy Americana Gumbo
DOVER- Patty and the Cakes will perform in concert at the Dover Park on Route 100, on Sunday, June 24, from 1 to 3 pm.
For Patty Carpenter, Melissa Shetler, Scotty Shetler, and Travis Light, it really is a family affair. This foursome stretches their biological connections through music. They combine as an incomparable collective with a jazz/Americana/soul/folk sound that, by all reasonable accounts, functions quite nicely. Carpenter composes, plays keyboards, and sings. Melissa Shetler handles vocals and melodica. Scotty Shetler is a wind man on tenor sax, clarinet, baritone, penny whistle, and mandolin. Light lays down the bass.
As the history of their marvelous and complex family relationships comes out in their music, it is clear that this is a community, a truly relational organism. The way they work, the way they live, and the way they make music is an expression of family, through and through. For a complete bio or to find upcoming concerts visit www.dfjbmusic.com.
