Celebrating its 16th year, Twangfest kicked off a strong 4-night run to a sold out crowd at the Schlafly Tap Room.

Headliners and hometown favorites, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three put an exclamation point on the night with a tightly honed performance that featured top shelf musicianship and a set filled with countless dancing numbers. LaFarge and his crew hooted, hollered, stomped, and smiled, and left the stage dripping with sweat, only to be called back for more by the festive and appreciative crowd.

Humming House warmed up the stage by bringing a very fine style of string music that showcased alternating beautiful male and female vocal duties, backed by spot-on instrument work and a strong stage presence. Having never played St Louis previously, this Nashville-based quintet had people in the palm of their hand by then end of the set. Look for them to draw a nice crowd next time they come back through town.

Prairie Rehab opened the evening and did so with style and grace. Not a group that is rowdy or flashy on stage, they let their well crafted tunes highlight themselves. While on stage, they are as charming as a 1950s TV character, and their set was filled with songs that had that same lasting quality.
