The Turncoats and Edmonton’s  Andrew Scott returned play a packed house at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Saturday, Sept. 29.

 Turncoats’ upright bassist Paul Holden, drummer Kyle Harmon are familiar faces on local stage.

Lead guitarist Arlen Wutch is always a welcome sight, but it is always a pleasure to see Andrew Scott perform even when I could hardly breathe because of the crowd.

The audience was having a blast, dancing up a sweat to the Turncoats’ unique brand of  alt country and off kilter jazz jams.

Paul Holden had a busy night, coming to the Owl straight from closing night of New West Theatre’s Million Dollar Quartet and looked a little tired, deservedly so, but nonetheless nailed it on the bass.

Scott thrashed around and howled lyrics through a megaphone for a song. For a couple more jazzy numbers, they welcomed a saxophonist onto the stage.
 I missed an opening reunion set from the Necessities as well as an acoustic set by MTBC.
