I was looking for a catchy bluegrass band to link to (reasons why will become apparent below) – but did you know that Jamendo does not have a bluegrass tag? Of all the styles and genres on Jamendo.com, no one has tagged anything as bluegrass. Interesting! At any rate, I found a band that I thought played the exact style that I was looking for anyway: The Patinettes!
The Patinettes are a band based in Zaragoza, Spain (I don’t even know where that is, to be honest) that plays a mix of country, folk, rock, bluegrass, and even a little bit of surf thrown in for good measure. The result is a fun album – called Bliss – with a little bit for everyone. I think the track that won me over was the second one – “The Man With the Electric Flag”.
There’s not too much else information about them online, but if I’ve missed anything, please point it in my direction!
Now, the reason why I was looking for a band of this type: coming up tomorrow night (Friday, June 10th) is another show by Capital Grass and the No Men! This time they are playing at Zaphod Beeblebrox with Mark Martrye & Justice R.F.
Their music is similar (but a little different) than The Patinettes, and they put on a pretty good live show. Check them out if you’re in the Ottawa area!

That's crazy… Same thing happened to me. I was searching for Bluegrass in Jamendo and stumbled onto these dudes.They are amazing…. I couldn't find much info about them either.
The Patinettes have some pretty gifted members. The potential of these guys are amazing. I had the very good fortune of catching a show in Zaragoza, at 5 euro a head it was a screamer of a night! Fantastic because it was kinda unexpected on my side. Best five euro ever spent. "the man with the electric flag" brought the house down! pati the lead singer has a voice to rival any of the best out there with amazing drumming and killer solos I was cheerfully blown away! Ones to watch if you can only find them!!! Aoife.
