Jeff German & The Blankety Blanks – Single Release Show
- This event has passed.
Americana artist, Jeff German & The the Blankety Blanks, returns for a Single Release show on Saturday, July 29th at 9pm at Natalie’s Grandview. The show will feature full band and acoustic versions of his songs to be performed on the intimate Charlie’s Stage.
This will be the debut of the new Blankety Blanks lineup that features Matt Wilson on pedal steel, and B3, Chris Jones on bass, Jeff Passafiume on Lead Guitar and 12-string and Adam Darlin on drums. The band just completed recording their 5th studio album for Slothtrop Records, Madison, Wisconsin which is scheduled to be released next spring. The first Single, “Blindside” will be released on July 28th in conjunction with their live performance at Natalie’s.
Jeff German & The Blankety Blanks music can best be described as “Midwest music for the working class.” He creates an eclectic mix of musical styles – country, punk, rock, bluegrass, gospel – and melds them into a blue-collar brand of Americana all his own.
The band has recorded and released four albums on the indie label Slothrop Records. His latest collaboration with the Blankety Blanks is his 5th studio album recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios in Ohio and engineered by the great Joe Viers. Jeff German is a true songwriter and wordsmith and a darling of many critics. One review stated, “Jeff seems unable to compose a bad song and with these releases does nothing but confirm it.”
Jeff German: Jeff was born in Lincoln Park, Michigan, south of Detroit-but just barely. He grew up listening to his older brother’s records; Bowie, Mott the Hoople, Stones, Faces. This was his entire musical framework. And when he turned inward to tell his story, his influences came pouring out.
His latest collaboration with the Blankety Blanks, set to be released in Spring of 2024, is his 5th studio album. Recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios in Ohio and engineered by the great Joe Viers, Jeff and his band, the Blankety Blanks (Matt Wilson on pedal steel, and B3, Chris Jones on bass, Jeff Passifiume on Lead Guitar and 12-string and Adam Darlin on drums) is set to be released as a series of timely singles leading up to the release of his full LP in the coming spring on the reinvigorated Slothrop Records.
