Influenced mostly by older blues and New Orleans jazz, RedLefty has also been known to throw in some western swing, ragtime and even a bit o' klezmer. Their set list ranges from dirty blues-harp boogies to swingin' horn pieces, all done with RedLefty's unique twist. The Palpitaters are a new local group featuring singer and songwriter Sean McEniry (formerly of Tank Farm and Hellcat Trio), guitarist Chad Bryan, keyboardist Dave Randall, bassist Brad Nichols, and drummer Justin Parr (all except Parr also play in The Ants). The group's donkey-shaking cocktail of Bakersfield country, soul, and R&B consists mostly of McEniry originals with the occasional Ray Charles or Gram Parsons number peppered in.
