In the four years since their last album, Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band have undergone something of an identity crisis. Sure, there are elements that have remained the same: Megan Jean’s hurricane of a voice that can glide from baritone to mezzo soprano without breaking a sweat; the engine-room thrum-and-stomp of her husband Byrne Klay on banjo and bass drum — that’s all intact.
But depending on when you might have seen them on their endless tour around the country, Megan Jean and Byrne Klay might have been a folk-tinged duo with Jean on acoustic guitar, or a washboard-strumming revue heavy on campy 1950s horror movie references and 1920s flapper-jazz style vocals. In their most recent incarnation, they’re a mesh of fiercely rhythmic, percussion-heavy propulsion, with the banjo and Jean’s roof-shaking voice the only melodic elements.
This year marks our 12th annual Concerts on the Dock and it is sure to live up to it’s longevity! As per every proceeding year we will continue to strive to bring our music loving community the freshest sounds available without sacrificing quality for quantity. Our mission is to bring all who attend the best in local, regional, and national acts they simply would not see anywhere else in town and provide those acts with a gracious built in audience hungry for the next big thing.
We can’t make this happen without you so bring friends, picnics, and pets on a leash to Huntsville’s most accessible concert series and join us under the water tower for eight weeks in the Spring and eight weeks in the Fall.
