Hazmat Modine

(New York) 

New York’s fearless world music alchemists Hazmat Modine create a rustic, deliriously Dionysian blend of speakeasy blues drawn from range of influences and time periods. Anchored by the dueling harmonicas of gravelly-voiced front man Wade Schuman and his sparring partner Bill Barrett and backed by tuba, drums, guitars and a horn section with occasional guests on exotic instruments like the Chinese mouth organ, Romanian cimbalom, the bass sax and the claviola, their trademarks are a sly musical wit, expert musicianship and distinctive sound.
