Album Notes
The Philcos are a band of vintage music preservationists who traverse both space and time to save forgotten gems of classic music to share with audiences both far and near. Led by Mike Cronic’s inimitable voice and fingerstyle guitar, his soft yet powerful delivery of timeless tunes such as “School Days,” “Bicycle Built for Two,” “Feets Too Big,” and “Sixteen Tons” leaves listeners impressed and nostalgic for times gone by. Accompanied by accomplished multi-instrumentalist Bryan Cumming on clarinet and melodeon, the sounds remind one of Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, or Pete Fountain. Those within earshot can imagine that they are tuning into the big radio in the living room while sitting nearby with the family, awaiting the start of the Philco Radio Hour. Keeping the beat and driving the low end is Sam Frazee and his “Dog-house Bass.” When all three members harmonize, it sends the crowd on a sentimental journey through the past. Drawing from diverse genres including jazz, blues, gospel, country and rockabilly, The Philcos will surely set your toe a-tapping.
