Trouble Town
Second Sundays Sin&Celebration at B&B

San Francisco pickers, Trouble Town boil a hot pot of folk, bluegrass, swing, jazz and rock into a rebel blend of music with a big acoustic sound. The band’s musical chemistry and diverse influences have allowed them to pull from a deep musical well and make it a special stew all their own.

The band was formed in 2019 from a more traditional 5-piece that included a banjoist and fiddler. When both players moved out of state the remaining members found that the resulting trio format of the core band opened a plethora of musical possibilities. Led by Western Swing Hall of Famer, Pam Brandon (AKA Belle of Belle Monroe and Her Brewglass Boys) on bass, with Forrest Allen (Dusty Green Bones Band) on mandolin, and Mark Ignatius (Burl Haggard, Boots and The Katz, Das Tapes) on guitar, the band worked through the pandemic by performing outdoors in parks and driveways to the delight of music-starved onlookers.

Their high energy shows are characterized by hot solos, deep pocket rhythms and Pam’s vocals, which have been described as anywhere from sultry to field holler. Originals bump shoulders with reimagined traditional songs and choice alt-genre covers, a blend that keeps everyone guessing where the set will go next. Welcome to Trouble Town!
