"An eclectic of mix of latin influence with bluegrass hillbilly with a fierce fiddler' that will get you moving.
I have seen some fiddle players back in the days of the Craftsbury old time fiddlers contests up
in Vermont, but this player could teach them a thing or two..." - Jaime

Bio

"What's up with the name Sidecar Agogo?"is a question often asked to Steve Uh, fiddler/multi-instrumentalist.

A classically trained violinist and self taught guitarist, Steve has had a wide varying range of musical experiences, from performing in a symphony orchestra with violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman, to jamming onstage with Phish's Paige McConnell at Nectar's.

"The sound of Sidecar Agogo is the result of all my influences growing up, from fiddle greats like Eileen Ivers, Ashley MacIsaac, Mark O'Connor, to Phish, Pat Methany, Fela Kuti. On a first listen it's going to be danceable and fun, but there are rhythmic subtleties to playing this music and its a real joy to play with these oustanding musicians. This has been a long time in the making. Agogo is a play on words, with the nod going to world influences found in the music of Sidecar Agogo".

Steve met up with Pat Dalbey (bass) upon moving to NYC in 2006, and after a number of personnel changes have developed chemistry through live shows (NYC-Rockwood Music Hall, Baggot Inn, Club Midway; Boston- Beehive) with the current lineup of musicians.

The current lineup are experienced musicians with festival experience on both sides of the Atlantic; Nearfest (PA), CalProg (CA), Berg Herzberg (DE) Zappanale (DE). Members of the band have opened up for or played with Dave Mason, !0,000 Maniacs, Spam All-Stars, Kerry Livgren (Kansas), Tom Marshall, The Dude of Life (Phish).

With plans for their 1st CD underway, its agogo time for Sidecar Agogo!
