Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss
Based on the resumes of vocalist Sean Wheeler (Throw Rag) and multi-instrumentalist Zander Schloss (Circle Jerks, the Weirdos, Joe Strummer), you'd expect a rambunctious sound emanating from the Legendary Duo, but you'd be wrong. The twosome plays a hybrid of folk, country, pop, ragtime, bluegrass and gospel that includes all the frenzied energy and spirit of the duo's aforementioned bands, but is executed with a soulful dash of Americana charm not often heard west of the Mississippi.
