Allan Mouding
 
 

Like an unexpected counter melody in a barroom waltz, Winnipeg alternative roots band Nathan has never been afraid to surprise. They did it in 2001 when original members Keri Latimer, Shelley Marshall and Devin Latimer scraped together nickels and dimes to record their first album, the off-balance pop gem “Stranger”.

They did it again in 2004 by asking Damon Mitchell, front man of combustible blues outfit New Meanies, to surrender his fiery guitar licks for sublime drum beats. They did it to themselves by shaking hands with Nettwerk, touring through well-worn tires and well-worn relationships, and recording a pair of nationally and internationally recognized albums, including the Juno Award-winning “Key Principles” in 2007. And now they’re doing it again by stirring fellow Winnipeg musician and songwriter Michael Marshall (Mike Trike) into a brand new musical cocktail.

 


 



 

From where else but the wonderful world of Winnipeg music could come an operation like the D. Rangers? Their brand of musical joy is a somehow simultaneously dangerous-as-hell and brilliantly inventive blend of bluegrass, western swing, punk rock, and just about anything else that ever put a bulge in a tough little rock and roll Prairie kid’s pants.

Described as "mutant bluegrass,” "un-country, and "arm-swinging hillbilly-stomp,” their live shows are an engaging mix of originals, traditional classics, and off-the-wall covers. With a stage show featuring a "muckbucket” bass (made from a plastic tub, some old lumber and two rope strings), a musical saw, and a rambunctiousness that would set Bob Wills spinning in his grave, they’ve built an increasingly loyal and devoted fan base playing folk festivals, bluegrass festivals, bars, halls and clubs throughout much of Canada.
