Pokey LaFarge - another very cool musical sound

Years ago, I was in Atlanta for a training class. An old navy buddy recommended that I try "Fat Matt's Rib Shack", for some good southern cooking. I enjoyed the meal, but I enjoyed the band even more. The band was Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three.

I don't know how you would classify the music; It seems to vary between early Amerian Blues and Dixieland. It's a distinctly early 20th century American sound, and I really like it. There can't be many bands playing this kind of music anymore.  I have a couple of their albums on order from Amazon right now. As far as I know, their music is original, not covers.  Every one of these guys is a kickass musician.  Check em out!
