Cabinet brings bluegrass to Smoke Signals

LAKE PLACID – Pennsylvania bluegrass band Cabinet will perform at 10 p.m. Friday at Smoke Signals, 2489 Main St.

Cabinet’s 4th record, “Leap” is exactly that for this sometimes ragged, all the time professional band of American dreamers from Pennsylvania.

After years of tearing apart American music and building it up again in their own vision, Cabinet has unveiled a work that defines itself. The rough hewn structure that began as six musicians with divergent styles coming together has been whittled, sanded and polished through persistence and hard work. The result is a structure that showcases each of the players and their unique contribution.

“Leap” was recorded live in the studio, over four days with a live audience by band members Pappy Biondo, J.P. Biondo, Mickey Coviello, Dylan Skursky, Todd Kopec and Jami Novak.
