JAZZ/BLUEGRASS | Still Hand String Band 

Brooklyn, Pennsylvania is not that far from the (in)famous New York borough in the grand scheme of things, but the Still Hand String Band sound has put a significant distance between this Pennsylvania four-piece and the skinny-jean wearing, hipster-indie-rockers that have been pouring over the Williamsburg Bridge. Jimmy Dee (guitar), Dee Maple (bass), Dee Kid (banjo), and Sunny Dee (mandolin) make knee-slappin', boot-stompin' music for the modern world. The band has created a distinctive species of Appalachian roots rock by expertly mixing elements of jam, jazz, folk, bluegrass, pop, and country into a gloriously frenzied genre it has deemed "spazzgrass."

Still Hand String Band performs Thursday, May 2, 9 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $7-$10. abilenebarandlounge.com.
