Country, folk and everthing in-between
MCSTARKATZ is a side-branch of a jam band called ecoostik hookah. They were formed in 2005 with a line-up of Ed McGee on guitar and vocals, Cliff Tarbuck on bass and vocals, and Dave Katz on piano, vocals and guitar. Their sets consist of original material as well as covers of songs by such bands as The Grateful Dead, Robbie Robertson and Bob Dylan. Mixed in with this is a helping of ecoostik hookah material. There is an amiability about their stage presence. The band chat with the audience, who are very much part pf the performance. Their musical range is wide. Numbers like "The River Song" are slower, melodic, with a strong Country feel. Then with songs like "John Henry", the pace picks up, until the Doobie Brothers-style guitar picking starts to sounds like a banjo. Cliff Starbuck’s voice is more rock-edged,. wWhereas Ed McGee has a Country-folk style. Being a jam band, ecoostik hookah, provided a good training ground for its MCSTARKATZ offshoot. The jam band tradition comes from groups like the Grateful Dead, whose sets consisted of improvisation and extended versions of songs. Musicians need to be on top of their game to cope with a jam band’s constantly shifting musical landscape on stage and endlessly inventive as they create new musical textures and launch into extended solos that need to hold their audience.
