Ever wonder what the Red Haired Boy would sound like with a one chord James Brown type of groove? Or what about songs titled Muppets On The Titanic or You Make My Skin Crawl? The Don Julin Quartet featuring Joe Wilson (dobro), Kevin Gills (bass), and Dave Collini (cajon) take listeners through a genre-bending instrumental journey that includes hints of bluegrass, jazz, latin, funk, and even a bit of baby boomer rock. Their latest recording “Live 2018” captures the magic of four great instrumentalists performing in a inspiring space, with an appreciative, listening audience.
