“Sills and her eclectic combo took to the stage like old pros, as their professional, fun and charming manner won the crowd over in a heartbeat. This is by far one of the coolest shows I’ve been to in quite a while.” – Paste Magazine
Fans of classic country and western swing are falling in love with the Carolyn Sills Combo’s original songs, written and performed by Carolyn Sills and her longtime guitarist and husband, Gerard Egan. The group, which was just named 2018 Ameripolitan Western Swing Group of the Year, puts on a dynamic live show, featuring Sunshine Jackson on vocals/percussion, Jim Norris on drums and Charlie Joe Wallace on steel guitar. Their performances are chock full of three-part vocal harmonies, dueling guitar and steel instrumentals and tight arrangements of their own distinct brand music, dubbed Spaghetti Western Swing.
“Local powerhouse Carolyn Sills is the real deal of throwback country music. She has enough soul, heart, style and swag to convince audiences and listeners that they have been transported to an era where country swing rules the waves, juke joints were the place to be, and heartache had a kick like a mule. ” – Cat Johnson, Good Times Magazine.
