Useless Cans rattle Brandon Music

Born in New York’s Capital Region, the Useless Cans have been bringing a mix of old-time jazz, folk and traditional Russian tunes to their audiences since 2016. The trio combines elements of music’s past along with a contemporary perspective, and consists of guitar, upright bass and washboard with all three members lending their voices. The Cans make their Brandon Music debut on Saturday, Aug. 18.
Guitarist, Bobby Davis and upright bassist, Dylan Perrillo, were the original Cans — heavily exploring gypsy jazz and playing in the Albany area. One fateful night, while playing an old Russian song at a now defunct art collective space, they caught the ear of Julia Posin who is of Ukrainian heritage. Knowing the words of the tune from her childhood, she began singing along and without knowing, they had performed for the first of what would become many times together.
Since then, the trio has gone all over the northeast, performing for the American Roots Music Series, Caffe Lena, Cafe Livre Concert Series in Long Lake and Saranac Lake’s Party on the Patio. They have shared the stage with Ryan Montbleau and Hot Club of Cowtown among many others.
The Useless Cans have just finished their third E.P., “Chillin’ at Breezy Point,” which features mostly tunes written by Davis that are inspired by today’s political and social climate. In the upcoming summer months the Cans will be performing around the northeast before they gear up for their fall tour to Nashville, Tenn., and back in support of their latest disc.
Saturday’s Brandon concert begins at 7:30 p.m. The show costs $20, add dinner for an extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
