At this point, the members of Boston's David Wax Museum have us all in a state of awe. We first wrote about this upstart four-piece fusion act (authentically mixing traditional Mexican and American folk) back in early 2008. We knew right away they had promise, but no one could have expected what would come to fruition just two years later... The Wax Museum (David Wax, Suz Slezak, Jiro Kokubu and Greg Glassman) could be the best Mexo-Americana fusion act in the United States currently.

NPR thinks so too - very highly recommended audio. Overall? The prior year has born witness to the band's release of Carpenter Bird - an RSL Best of 2009 Pick - dates with The Low Anthem and The Avett Brothers, and a growing fan following up and down the American east coast. Not too bad.

Just last week I relayed just how I excited I was to be adding a skilled digital video guy to the website and now is when it begins to pay-off for you. Boston filmmaker Steve Legare has captured the David Wax Museum's Feb 17th live show at Club Passim for Ryan's Smashing Life. The clips feature the extended David Wax Museum (the full band lineup from the recording of Carpenter Bird album) - together again for the very first time. An absolute gem to have on video. Head over to the new David Wax Museum channel on Steve Legare's Vimeo Page for more!
