Sarah Swain & The Oh Boys! In Harwich – VIDEO

HARWICH – We crashed Sarah Swain’s birthday party. People have cool birthdays all the time. But we’ve never seen the star of the party quite be the star of the party like the great Sarah Swain on Tuesday night.

We didn’t actually crash the party. We just sort of joined the standing-room only crowd of folks who turned out at the stunning Wequassett Resort and Golf Club right on Pleasant Bay to hear Sarah Swain & The Oh Boys! play rockabilly.

The band of Sarah Swain on guitar and vocals, Ron Siegel on bass, Jerry Smith on guitar, Liam Hogg on drums, and Jesse Lynch on piano mixed originals and covers in a way that managed to get some of the most well-dressed folks on Cape Cod, some who certainly sometimes answer to the names “Grandma” or “Grandpa”, dancing like teenagers.

While the band slowed it down for a few tender songs that touched the heart, it more often had everyone bouncing in a way that felt like all were with Siegel when he began climbing his bass.

Here is an original by Swain, “Little Bit ‘O Lovin,” that will be on her upcoming, as yet untitled, CD.  We can’t wait for it. Here’s why.


Here are a couple other times we’ve seen the band
