Midnight Cattle Callers nominated for five Jammie awards

The Midnight Cattle Callers, up for multiple awards, will be at The Intersection on February 14 to perform at the Jammie Awards.
Underwriting support from:

Local Band The Midnight Cattle Callers will perform their rare blend of swing and country music this Tuesday night at the Intersection Lounge (133 Grandville Ave.) as part of the 13th annual Jammie Awards, 88.1FM WYCE's annual celebration of local and international music.

The group itself is nominated for several "Jammies," including: Best Album, Best Americana Album, Best New song, Outstanding Female Peformer and Producer of the Year at the award ceremony. 

The Grand Rapids-based sextet, which consists of Dee Foster on lead vocals and guitar, Seth Sutton on upright bass and vocals, Roger Brown on electric guitar, Luke Gitch on Mandolin and banjo, clarinetist Keith Hudson, and Sean Hoffman on fiddle, has a vast amount of talent and just the right personality to produce a new twang. The 12 original songs on their impressively arranged self-titled debut album brings you back to the cowboy days and whiskey nights of America's past. It has received international accolades as well, having been selected as country album of the month in May 2011's issue of the UK-based Country Music People Magazine

"It will be a great honor to be recognized for what we love to do: perform," said Sutton, who doubles as both the band's manager and perfomer.

The free Jammie Awards will be especially entertaining with the talent of the Midnight Cattle Callers. It is a rare treat to hear them perform their unique mix of Kentucky bluegrass, Appalachain twang and swing music.

The group will be performing their Best New Song Award-nominated hit "Ramblin' Cat" (see video above) at 9:50 in The Intersection's front lounge.
