Blaggards music in “How To Be Single”

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 2.55.49 PM

We are THRILLED to announce that we have a new original instrumental piece appearing in the upcoming New Line Cinema film How To Be Single, starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann and Damon Wayans, Jr., and directed by Christian Ditter. The movie comes out on February 12 (watch the trailer).

The instrumental “Kerfuffleful” was written and recorded last November with our friend Jeff Duncan on fiddle at Joe Omelchuck’s RBI Recording here in Houston. It will appear in the background of a scene that takes place, naturally, in a pub on Saint Patrick’s Day.

Many thanks to Jeff and Joe for making this track sound great and helping us meet our deadline, and especially to Whitney and Season at Full Pursuit Media for reaching out to us and making this happen!

Looking for Fiddle Players!

Blaggards are looking for a new fiddle player! Part-time and/or potentially full-time. We need someone with a good ear, proficiency in multiple styles (skill with additional instruments like guitar and mandolin is a plus), no drugs, solid work ethic (team player), ability to travel, and an energetic stage presence. Prior experience playing in bands long-term is preferred, but not required.

If you’re interested, send us an email at email hidden; JavaScript is required with a short bio and links to performance videos.

You can also help us get the word out by sharing this with a friend.

Cheers everyone, and thanks for continuing to rally behind us all these years. Great things are forthcoming!
