Amy Kucharik says
Acclaimed songwriter returns to St. Louis for an evening playing original music and early jazz standards at Evangeline's. Amy will be joined by Ben Wheeler on upright bass.

About Amy Kucharik: The 2015 Kerrville New Folk winning songwriter explores the full range of her ukulele, both exploiting and defying its reputation as a novelty instrument. Her catchy, sexy, sometimes haunting lyrics recount tales of reluctant love, heartbreak, revenge, and grit. Texas Outside said Amy “…stole the show with the light, upbeat sounds of her instrument and voice against the dark humor of her lyrics.” Whether performing as a one-woman-band with foot percussion and mouth trumpet, or with Boston-based ensemble Friends With Benefits (upright bass, backing vocals, and horns), Amy's Vaudevillian charm and infectious, danceable swing transport her audience to a place both timeless and familiar. Drawing from blues and Dixieland traditions and with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston, Amy’s "modern vintage" grooves have earned her comparisons to Lake Street Dive, Maria Muldaur and the Asylum Street Spankers. Amy has been touring for the last couple of years, sharing stages with the likes of Rod Picott, Daphne Lee Martin, and Danielle Ate the Sandwich.
