The Janglin' Duo have been around about a year, and they're knocking out local dates. There's two this weekend -- at Poorhouse and Propaganda -- and more planned for next month. With their diverse sound, it's easy to see why they're in high demand.
Chuck (Jangle Leg) Callaway is the main voice and songwriter of the two. He played washboard and some guitar and accordion with Everymen for about two years, performed with the Darling Sweets, Askultura, and other area groups for 10, and was a one man band for 6 months before adding banjo player, Felix (El Gato) Maldonado. This is NY-bred Maldonado's his first musical project. Callaway says, "He's always been jumping all over the place in concerts before, but this is the first time he's actually plugged in an instrument and played with a band." But you'd never know it.
The duo is planning a tour with possible North Carolina dates and recording the last track on their eponymous EP called "Paper Airplanes." It even features local Lake Worth rapper Croosh. We spoke with Callaway about the Lake Worth music scene ("the coolest"), the band's sound and beginnings.More »
