“Nightmaricana” is how Abandoned Bells describes their sound. It’s an apt description. But not hellish, evil nightmares the likes of Hollywood horror. No, Abandoned Bells is a mix of very left-of-center, ghoulish, bizarro variety of Americana. The three-piece group featuring drums, banjo, baritone guitar and vocals is one of the more unique bands currently occupying the KC scene that doesn’t get kitschy like so much “unique” music can. The group’s songwriting ability coupled with the confidence as performers allows them to stretch out considerably within genre. We caught the band recently playing at set down at miniBar and were not disappointed.
