The AmigosThe Amigos are a young, Brooklyn-based band with a new album, their first, Diner in the Sky, which features a winning blend of country, Cajun, bluegrass, gospel, mariachi, and even a touch of jazz. They hold this musical mix together with high energy, matching Western shirts, exceptional talent, and a spirit of big fun. Time Out New York says they “heat up the joint” and The New Yorker praises their “loose-limbed charm.” They play mostly originals, but now and then they’ll throw in a quirky cover, anything from “Hey Joe” to “Country Road.”

With Sam Reider on accordion, piano, and organ, Justin Poindexter on guitars, lapsteel, and banjo, Noah Garabedian on bass, Will Clark on drums, Eddie Barbash on saxophones, flute, and percussion, and Devin Greenwood on organ, bass, and percussion, the band creates a wide range of musical textures. Sam and Justin write the originals and sing lead, and Eddie and Devin handle backup vocals. The band recently toured China, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, and Vietnam as musical ambassadors for the U.S. State Department’s American Music Abroad program. They also conduct over fifty educational workshops in New York City public schools each year, sponsored by Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz for Young People program. For a fresh, fun take on the possibilities of American roots music, catch The Amigos at the Freight.
