A severely under-featured feature of our site is “Awesome Nobodies.” I would like to take this opportunity to revive it with the wonderful surprise that is the Slow Moving Lions of the Vegetable World. What a treat. Picture this: 4-part harmony, a cello, a guitar, a mandolin and a saw. Yup, you read the right, a saw. What a lovely sound, the cello and the saw, but there are so many wonderful combinations: the pretty voice of Liz Reid and the mandolin, two male voices and Liz, the guitar and the cello, the saw and the mandolin… Ahhh I’m losing track. It’s awesome. Liz sings, plays the guitar and is the principle songwriter; Kevin Skalba has been playing the cello since he was a child; Aaron Burke plays the saw with a subtle, tasty flair; Jacob Stahl is a mandolin maniac! They opened for me at a show recently at Kimo’s in San Francisco and I was so pleased they agreed to play. Delightful they are!

Click through for an awesome video from our show.

They are awesome but too few outside our area know about them. Share this with everyone you know. They deserve it. For being unique, for doing it nicely and for doing it well, they deserve it.
