But it’s not completely unfitting. On one hand, The John Brothers Piano Company quintet have always held a kind-of elegance among grittiness to them. A product of their sound combining roots of New Orleans’ dixieland, classic big band and all the romanticism that comes with jazz. Survival Guide, on the other hand, has a electronic-pop feel that is, in its own way, elegant and edgy. The first track of her album Way To Go, “Ugly Side” is a song fit for radio, but powerful enough to spawn a compelling live show. Emily Whitehurst, the band’s front-woman, promises a show different from usual, as well: “I often play solo, but at this show I’ll have a guitar player and a keyboard player.”
