"The NoDeans have no particular direction or master plan and no time for figuring it out. If it’s blues, folk, country, rock, pop or a little jazz - they just PLAY. With the soulful voice of Leslie Agre and sublime keyboards of Jimmy Jacobs (both from the Jello Boys and Solid Sender) and the rhythm section of Ray Reshetiloff on bass and Tom Fridrich on drums (the Jello Boys and the Racket) you get a gumbo of musical mania. Add DC’s own telecaster hero Dave Chappell as guest guitarist and the results are combustible! Assembled for a one-time-only private showcase, the success of that performance prompted calls for more performances just when The Pandemic hit. With three lead singers the music comes from the likes of Etta James, The Band, Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Ray Vaughn."
