teagueBest known for his work in the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, Teague Alexy has also performed with a variety of backing bands over the years. The Ill Contingent combines Alexy’s roots-rock guitar, harp and vocals with the veteran musicianship of guitarists Jeremy Ehlert and Jason Wussow, bassist Veikko Lepisto and drummer Tyler Dubla. Parts of the Ill Contingent have backed up, shared gigs and collaborated with Alexy for years, so the songs find a perfect mixture of folk-rock formula and jam-band improvisation. Members Wussow and Lepisto of the ska band Wood Blind worked with Alexy on a seven-inch record released in January, which featured a reworking of Alexy’s “Working Man’s Song.”
