Extended Play Sessions,”An authentic blend of New Orleans jazz, Piedmont blues, Gullah Geechee rhythm and New York sass, Banjo Nickaru and Western Scooches brought down the house at The Extended Play Sessions Fallout Shelter earlier this month. Nick Russo is the brainchild behind this and host of other projects that combine this nimble quartet with authentic American Roots styles. Betina Hersey handles the vocals with some scat backing from Miles Griffith. Featuring percussionist David Pleasant on the Gullah Geechee drum kit.”

Extended Play Sessions invites bands to perform at an invitation-only live setting with the aim of video taping the whole show and then sharing with the world. Thanks so much, Extended Session! You made us so welcome. We loved our time there!
