Cigar Store Indians
From the venue:
Cigar Store Indians are an American rockabilly band from Crabapple, Georgia. The band formed in the summer of 1991 when singer/songwriter Ben Friedman moved back home from a year and a half stint playing in NYC. He met through a creative loafing ad lead guitar player Jimmy "Lownote" Lavender and they began working together on a vintage sound. Both musicians shared a love for the 1950s blues/country sound (called rockabilly music). Ben's childhood friend, drummer Frances "Fast Pedal" Farran was enlisted to play the drums. Many nights were spent practicing in "Fast Pedal" Farran's shed.
