Buke and Gass - Riposte
Its nice to see some interesting blood on the scene these days. Buke and Gass are a Brooklyn based 2 piece that is carving a name for themselves. Where does this name come from you might be wondering? well heres the break down. Singer Arone Dyer plays the Buke (a self-modded six-string baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez plays the Buke (a guitar/bass hybrid made by him). Oddly enough Sanchez was previously a maker of instruments for the Blue Man Group. The two instruments together form this really interesting and pleasant sound and with the addition of Arone's extremely strong vocals its a very unique listen. You could say its folk rock and that maybe as close as your going to get especially coming from two unique instruments. I can very easily see these two getting a lot of exposure. Not something you come across often at all.
