The Laser Cats is a five piece gypsy-jazz band I started with other students from Santa Fe University of Art and Design. I play banjo, Matt Ruder and Kyle Driscoll play guitars, Konor Hunter-Crump plays violin and Dan Mench-Thurlow plays bass. We perform both original pieces and gypsy jazz standards.
Zickey and the Kondor is mainly a two piece band that is based in Santa Fe. We play mostly bluegrass influenced originals but we also draw on African folk music as well as Middle-Eastern folk music for inspiration. I play banjo, guitar and upright bass and Konor Hunter-Krump plays fiddle and mandolin. Check out our band camp for some tunes before we release an EP! https://zickeyandthekondor.bandcamp.com/track/mona-demo
