Ruthie and The Wranglers are joined by Johnny Spampinato formerly of NRBQ for an evening of country music and the legendary JV’s in Falls Church.
Azalea City Recordings’ Artists, Ruthie & the Wranglers, play rockin’ American Roots music (also known as FUN!) and are based in the Washington, DC area. After 25 Years of Wrangler Twang, including touring, radio airplay, and releasing six albums, the band remains a cornerstone of the DC roots music scene. From original Americana Country to rousing Surf instrumentals, their clever lyrics, high energy and spritely hillbilly harmonies set them apart from the rest. The band has released 6 CDs, most recently, “Ruthie and the Wranglers LIVE at Goose Creek”

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
