To support their latest full-length, Magpie, Portland, Oregon-based roots-pop act Sassparilla has made a video for “All The Way In,” the album’s first single. The Portland, Oregon-based Americana outfit Sassparilla delivers a collection of chameleon roots-pop on their latest, Magpie, which was released on October 23, 2012. A 9-track offering of songs that span the gamut of the AM dial glory days, the record was released by Portland, Oregon-based independent record label Fluff & Gravy Records. Sassparilla is Kevin Blackwell (vocals, lead guitar, national resonator guitar), the father and son combo of Ross Macdonald (harmonica) and Colin Macdonald (bass), Naima (vocals, accordion, washboard), Justin Burkhart (drums), and Ben Stewart (bass).
Long considered one of the most entertaining, sweaty live shows in the Pacific Northwest by fans and concertgoers, a Sassparilla live show consists of dancing, sing-along numbers, and plenty of good times.
