Butchers & Bakers used to be four guys, all of whom sang (sort of) and many of whom played guitar, often at the exact same time, very loudly. They are now four people, based in Brooklyn, only one of whom sings. Rebecca Keith’s voice sounds kind of like Grace Slick and kind of like Glenn Danzig; sometimes she plays keyboards too. Founding members Chris Asta and Mike Morini play guitar and drums, and newest member, bassist Hank Baker, was given automatic admission to the band because of his last name. Butchers & Bakers are two native New Yorkers (one uptown, one downtown), one part Eastern Mass, and one part Western Mass.
Butchers & Bakers are playing a show at Union Pool on March 29th with The Homophones and Wojcik. The Homophones are coming up from Philly and this will be Wojcik's first show back from SXSW and Europe-- she'll be reunited with her drummer after playing without him in Austin and abroad.
