WITCHER, RECUPIDO & LEVITT
Witcher- Recupido & Levitt, or if that’s too much, just use the acronym WRL. Regardless of the name, the result is the same, an exciting night of guilt free entertainment. This is Bluegrass at its best, great harmonies, exciting instrumentals and some of the finest original material around.
Dennis Witcher, founder of the legendary Los Angeles based bluegrass band The Witcher Brothers, and long time Witcher Brothers band mate and song writing collaborator Tony Recupido, team up with Banjo stylist extraordinaire Dan Levitt to form this must see, exciting, new Los Angeles bluegrass band.
For more than twenty years Dennis Witcher and Tony Recupido have been mainstays on the West Coast bluegrass circuit. Their amazing songs have touched audiences across the country for years with soul grabbing melodies, lyrics that touch the heart and harmonies that are as close to sibling harmonies as you can get without having the same last name. When you add Tony’s amazing work on the guitar and Dennis’ distinctive mandolin style, that’s a pretty complete act in itself.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Dennis and Tony have teamed up with the amazing and innovative banjo stylist Dan Levitt. Having developed and mastered a banjo style he calls “Contemporary Clawhammer” with a melodic frailing style that incorporates elements of bluegrass, ragtime, folk, classical and blues, Dan makes an enormous contribution to the unique sound of the band. THIS IS A MUST SEE!
