Since he was 14, I've posted my friend Greg Fleischut's music here from time to time. Greg is now 21 and it's been amazing and inspiring to watch him grow musically and across genres, from bluegrass and freak folk to indie rock and gypsy jazz. His new band Hi-Fi Honeydrops has been making quite a scene in the Los Angeles swing scene. You can catch them every Wednesday night at 1642 Beer and Wine near Echo Park.

(In the above video shot during a recent swing night at Joe's Great American Bar & Grill, Jake Reed is guest on the skins.)
