Artist of the day: The Sarah Mac Band




In June, we named The Sarah Mac Band from Tallahassee a Soundcheck Artist of the Day. So why are we spotlighting them again? Simple: It's a Christmas miracle!

Let us explain. The band -- Sarah Mac on vocals, guitar and more; Charlie Vanture on lead guitar and Claire Swindell on bass -- is a semi-regular performer around these parts, with a sound that calls to mind Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. But they're tweaking that sound just a bit for the holidays.

On Saturday, the band is performing at 8 p.m. at the Hideaway Cafe in St. Petersburg, along with two special guests -- renowned jazz drummer Leon Anderson and violinist Libby O'Neill. It's part of a special Christmas tour, during which the band will play a set of original music and a set of holiday tunes.

Tickets are $15, but come on, don't be a Scrooge. Check 'em out. Click here for the details on the show.
