About this Artist

Posted By Ellis Dyson & the Shambles

Ellis Dyson & the Shambles expertly blends old-time influences ranging from Piedmont murder ballads, to traditional jazz, to big band swing.

The result: whiskey-soaked, foot-stompin’ songs that bring party music of departed eras to crowds both young and old. The Shambles have made waves with their theatrical and explosive live shows and masterful musicianship that electrifies every audience.

Ellis Dyson & the Shambles consists of Ellis Dyson (banjo, vocals), Eli Wittmann (acoustic guitar), Jonathan Ng (fiddle), Adam Maloney (upright bass) Danny Abrams (soprano/alto/baritone saxophones, vocals), and Danny Grewen (trombone, vocals). The band has come together through a series of fortuitous meetings in Chapel Hill, N.C. Beginning as a saxophone and banjo duo, the band has grown into a freight train string band with a flashy horn section.
