“Ordinary” would not be the word to use to describe any bands that specialize in the art of old-time styles, be it hot jazz, ragtime, gypsy or old-school country. However, your humble Austin Music Minute maven is always compelled to point out that The Love Leighs is not your ordinary old-timey band. There’s a touch of the contemporary within. As a matter of fact, they would go so far as to call it “new-timey” music embracing the traditional sounds of early roots. They’re the perfect combination of old jazz, blues, and plenty of twang with wicked three-part harmonies and a dash of devious drama. You cannot resist. Bring in a little Vaudevillian swagger and keep the humor on the twisted side.

The Love Leighs continue their October residency at The White Horse, 500 Comal St., with a performance Tuesday night at midnight. You can catch Charlie Pierce‘s band Choctaw Wildfire at 10 p.m. Check it all out.
