Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties is as much a band as it is a story.
The band plays americana, sometimes with 6 or 8 or 10 people—a horn section, banjo, lap steel, strings and more—and sometimes as one man with an acoustic guitar and his voice. It's rock & roll with fragmented pieces of punk and country and troubadour-style sing-songwriter music taking influence from Springsteen, Rilo Kiley, and The Weakerthans. Some nights, it's somber and intimate. Some nights, it's loud, bombastic and joyous.
