Jeremy Blair From Effingham, Itchy Hearts, Jordan & the Sphinx 

When: Thu., Feb. 24, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

In 2003, Jordan Dupree and wife, Adrienne Christiana, began performing together in Knoxville. But Jordan & The Sphinx became a family band three years later when Christiana's father and brother joined following the couple's move back to her childhood home in Arkansas. After cutting its teeth hosting the weekly open mic at a nearby VFW, the group hit a rough patch a few years later when Christiana's father had to give up drumming amid difficulties recording an album and finding shows. After a brief schism, the pair patched up its relationship and headed to Durham in late 2008, on Dupree's brother's promise that a rich local music scene awaited them.

"[We were] hoping to record our songs, meet great local musicians and get involved in a vibrant music community," Dupree explains of the move, and they've done just that. Hooking up with bassist William Brown and former American Aquarium drummer Paco Robles, the new incarnation of Jordan & The Sphinx released an EP last May, revealing a funky folk sound that's wildly eclectic but positively steeped in the band's rambling Southern experiences.
