About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: February 19, 2009
  • Artist / Band: Pokey LaFarge
  • Hosting Show: The Space Parlour
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

Louisville, Kentucky native Pokey LaFarge offers a ragtime blues sound that's finger pickin' good. Attracted to old time music since boyhood, his acoustic songs feature a warm patina of yesteryear and a uniquely Pokey punch--both of which he brought to the Space Parlour for a live performance.

Streaming Audio

Influenced by Fats Waller, Ray Charles, and Townes Van Zandt, Pokey's music reflects his belief that he should have been born in the twenties. Released in 2008, Beat, Move, and Shake features brisk tunes about life and love. Looking a bit like Pee-Wee Herman in the video for "Mr. Nobody," Pokey laments "I think you're boring, you think I'm strange" while his audience bangs Pabst Blue Ribbon and Jack Daniels bottles on the table. Pokey picked and strummed at Deluxe in Maplewood on February 20, 2009.
