Bandwidth: Texan sibling band brings honky tonk to the East Bay
on March 24, 2011
Brother and sister Sarah Lynn and Aaron Goeth were raised on church service and bar music while growing up in San Antonio, Texas. Now living in Oakland, the ginger-haired duo have been playing as Aquarena Springs, a country, honky-tonk band that incorporates the ukelele, drums, bass, melodica and keyboard.
On Tuesday, they performed with another Oakland-based band, Slow Moving Lions of the Vegetable World, and Brooklyn folk band Prairie Empire at The Hive in West Oakland.
Listen here to more of the sounds of Aquarena Springs and to get show updates.
