Deep Cricket Night is a four cornered, pearly moonlight serenade unfurled headlong into dawn with 'Beggar's Banquet' in your ride, Townes Van Zandt at your side, and an original, melodic sound comprised of Lance Drake (gtr/lead vocals), Joseph Werner (drums/percussion), Ciaran Cooper (percussion/vocals), Philip Alley (lead guitar/mandolin/vocals), and Aaron Spelbring (bass/dobro/lap steel). Musically, they build their unique electric-acoustic sound with an instrumentation highlighted by the melodic lead guitar playing of Phil Alley and the lead vocal-lyrical strength of the band's primary songwriter, Lance Drake. The eclectic rhythm section of Joey Werner, Ciaran Cooper, and Aaron Spelbring round out the band's ability to bring it stripped down or amped up.
