Pass the Hat Music Series - Union Oil Company

Union Oil Co is a new alt country rock band with a bluegrass heart leaning heavily on influences such as Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons, The Rolling Stones and John Hartford and featuring unique and original songs by Nate Parienti. The band features a rotating cast of both local and nationally touring veterans with a instrumentation consisting of pedal steel, organ/keys, drums, bass, two guitars and the occasional fiddle, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. The band focuses on a tight song structure but definitely likes to stretch out occasional solo breaks.
