Concert photos: Anders Osborne with the Five and Dimers at the Duck Room, Tuesday, May 15

Anders Osborne Anders Osborne Rick Priest
Written by Rick Priest

Anders Osborne performed last night at the Duck Room to a packed crowd, with St. Louis-based Five and Dimers opening.

The Five and Dimers -- who play an unfiltered Americana style -- are Matt Taul on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, John Masinelli on upright bass, Matt McGibany on fiddle, Adam Peipert on banjo, Pete Klein on lead guitar and Jeff Walker on drums. They play a combination of bluegrass, country and rock. Their songs feature clear, understandable vocals, three part harmony and multiple lead instruments, which makes for good listening. They are a local band, and they definitely had some fans in the nearly full Duck Room.

From the first note on, Anders Osborne did not let up. With massive amps and multiple speaker cabinets, hearing him is certainly not a problem, especially in the quaint quarters of the Duck Room. Carl Dufrene (bass) and Anders push one another by squaring off in a face-to-face duels. Facial expressions reflect the intensity with which they play. Osborne's band is a tight three piece band with Eric Bolivar on drums. In lieu of the normal, regimented 3-4 minute songs, they perform lengthy, power-packed instrumental jams intermixed with Anders' vocals.
