PRLog - Jan. 17, 2008 - BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Smith Street Records announcement: The Jones Street Boys appearing at Sundance Film Festival

After touring the Midwest in December, The Jones Street Boys are pleased to announce two appearances at the Sundance Film Festival!

“Listening is like running down a mountain on a switchback trail, the sound of surprise generating its own momentum. There's a punk glee
inside the bluegrass craft--and a punk vehemence inside the bluegrass smile.” - Greil Marcus

“The band’s ingratiating 2007 release, Overcome, applies the warmth of traditional music to tales of young, urban life in the modern age, coming across like 1995 Wilco with the sensibility of 2007 Wilco.” - The Onion AV Club

“For a band of Brooklynites, the Jones Street Boys kick up a pretty good hillbilly stomp on Overcome (Smith Street). They play their catchy originals with virtuosic mandolin jams and honky-tonk piano fillers, and top them with off-kilter, good-time harmonies.” - Time Out New York

“The Jones Street Boys are a force of nature. They own harmony.” - Tom Crawford, Station Manager, WMSE 91.7 Milwaukee

“Nope, these Jones Street Boys aren't the Bensonhurst bruisers from The Warriors. These Jones Street Boys are Midwest-born, Brooklyndwelling
bluegrass aficionados, who infuse their debut album with a DIY spirit.” - Amelia Raitt, eMusic
