#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //
 
“The onstage presence of Don’t Stop Please is truly something to behold.
With six members, all of them multi-instrumentalists, their performance
area can get a little crowded. Their shows often resemble a circus act
as they juggle instruments and change positions, often in the same song.
But this is no novelty act. No musical terrain is off limits for Don’t
Stop Please, whose music fits nicely into
jazz, rock, funk, folk and/or bluegrass. Add that to the stellar
songwriting and Anna Horton’s gorgeous Fiona Apple-esque vocals in
tandem with frontman Joel Ludford’s own singing voice, and you’ve got it
all.”
Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, Twitter and BandCamp. For this week’s hump day edition of my coverage of the Paste 50 States Project takes us back to Arkansas and Don’t Stop Please.
