JUST DYING to kick off your shoes and dance, dance, dance to some rollicking good olde-tyme mountain music? Then get ready for a rare treat this far West of the Mississippi! HOBOS IN LIMBO are well known for their authentic traditionals, freight train fast instrumentals, memorable originals and sweet and tender waltzes.
THE HOBOS came together in a kitchen near the Rio Grande one morning in May of 2003 with Albuquerque's Best Singer/songwriter and Busker of 2009, Virginia born Fast Heart Mart (aka: Martin Stamper) bluegrass banjo player Kevin Jones and punk rock bassist Roblyn Crawford each possessing an undying love of mountain music. Each shared the missions of revitalizing and interpreting the songs they loved best, while continuing to write new material in the genre that would stand the test of time.
The two songwriters in the band are prolific. Kevin Jones and Fast Heart Mart have written modern bluegrass songs that have the sincere feel of olde-tyme music without being derivative. The compositions are fresh and the topics often modern, (credit card debt, The Apocalypse, divorce, gentrification) and often ageless, (the splendor of the ocean, racism, unrequited love.)
In in July of 2003, The Hobos recorded a session on their front porch. This became their first CD entitled "...on the porch...". This rare cd includes two Kevin Jones originals, eleven standards, a cameo by a resident cat, a rainstorm, and even crazy neighbors drag racing. "...on the porch..." can now be purchased and downloaded in mP3 format from their site at Soundclick.com.
