The Gin Rebellion
The Gin Rebellion is the musical collective formed by Jason Bush and Nick Picard, joined by Catherine Barson Eastis and Austin Sirkin. Together they perform music in a manner never before heard in this century or any other. They draw inspiration from Vaudeville, early American folk, musical theater, and various regions of Eastern Europe and abroad.
Jason brings a trained musical background to the group, studying music from a young age and offering dark, humorous, or romantic narratives in lyric and tone. Nick’s instrumental prowess is the most varied of the band, switching from guitar to banjo, mandolin to accordion. Catherine brings deeply meaningful and complex narratives that are as universally relatable as they are beautifully written. Austin enriches the sound by contributing the deep, satisfying tones of the electric upright bass, which he either plucks or bows.
This diversity of style and background brings forth a cultural and stylistic mix that melds into our veritable assault of melodic noise designed to soothe and salve even the most savage of souls.
Perhaps the most unique and eclectic experience around, Wasted Wine brings the gypsy rock party to you! From Greenville, SC, the quintet travels with a wide array of world instruments and performance art antics to help convey their lyrically rich, musically compelling world.
