The Showdown Kids: Metzger, Jacoby, Kafka Announce Debut At Rockwood Music Hall
Violinist Katie Jacoby will be teaming up with guitarists Scott Metzger and Simon Kafka in a new side project titled ‘The Showdown Kids.’ The band make their live debut, under the new moniker, at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall on December 11.
Attendees of the performance can count on an evening of gypsy jazz and lightning musical acrobatics, based up previous collaborations by the three musicians. Jacoby is best know for her precision and diversity on the violin while Zafka’s resume includes guitar work for a number of major label recording artists and several Broadway shows and Metzger’s guitar playing is well known from his work with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and his own band WOLF!.
