Listeners that haven't yet experienced Cabinet in person will no longer be left out, thanks to a series of live albums. The THIS IS CABINET series features tracks culled from concerts in Cabinet's home region of Wilkes-Barre, PA and Stroudsburg, PA, as well as from shows in Erie and Cleveland, all popular stops on Cabinet's touring routes. The most recent of the series, THIS IS CABINET - COVERS (a free album given to fans for the 2011 holiday season), features a collection of traditional and standard bluegrass and folk numbers plus a couple Paul Simon tracks thrown in for good measure. THIS IS CABINET - SET I (released Dec. 2010 on Ropeadope Records) showcases the band's arrangement of a few more traditional songs as well as extended versions of tracks from their self-titled debut.
Cabinet is a band that has outgrown any "regional favorite" tag and has progressed to a broader fanbase, all while retaining their signature sound. The band self-released a debut album, "Cabinet," before signing with Ropeadope, which took notice and re-released that album digitally.
Cabinet formed in 2006, bringing together players from various musical and personal backgrounds. Some of the members are barely old enough to drink legally, but their thirst for older music is unquenchable. Whether its rustic "American Beauty"-era Grateful Dead or old-timey bluegrass, Cabinet has digested it all. But that is not to say that Cabinet recreates older styles. No, this is music that might have its roots in the past, but it is current and vibrant, with a sense of celebrating the now.
