Meet the Seavers 

When: Thu., July 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Husband-and-wife duo Jace Seavers and Dorothy Gilmore-Seavers have taken the stripped-down approach about as far as it can go: upright bass, a few finger snaps and a couple of human voices. With Dorothy’s sultry singing and Jace’s slinky bass lines and supporting vocals, the duo weave a sound somewhere between old-school swing and film-noir jazz. Add in their theatrical attire and stage antics, and Meet the Seavers performances become the closest thing Nashville has to a vintage vaudeville act. Highlights from their debut album Sugar in the Raw include “Give Me Flame!” (which recalls Peggy Lee’s version of “Fever”) and “The Cruelty You Flaunt,” a dose of sinister circus music that would have been perfect for Sweeney Todd. If David Lynch is shooting a carnival midway scene and needs a supporting act in the fire-swallowing tent, he need look no further. And any band whose name is the title of a Growing Pains episode (Season 6, episode 21) gets bonus points in our book — even though Dorothy and Jace say they’ve never seen the show
