Them Coulee Boys and Mama Said String Band will perform at Caffe Lena, July 21

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Come Cafe Lena July 21 are Them Coulee Boys and Mama Said String Bandtwo string groups that bring their own original flavor to American music.

Soren Staff and Beau Janke—co-founders of folk/rock/Americana band Them Coulee Boys—met as counselors at a Bible camp in northern Wisconsin in 2011. Having both grown up in the middle of a stretch of river valleys carved out by glacial melt in the Midwest, otherwise known to French fur trappers as coulées, they quickly became friends. The camp counselors actually coined the name “the sunken boys” to refer to the constant companions, most often with instruments in their hands. Soren’s little brother, Jens, joined the mandolin team at camp in 2012, and since then Neil Krause on bass and Staš Hable on drums have helped shape the band into the upbeat band it is today. today.
