Second Hand Suits
Second Hand Suits are a jazz, folk, and blues-rock band based in Lancaster, PA. Whether they are crooning a jazz standard or pounding out an original rock tune, Second Hand Suits bring an energetic yet classic feel to their music. This is best summarized in their band motto: vintage sounds for modern times.
Lead guitarist Jordan Rast and upright bassist Peter Reist both grew up listening to bluegrass and old time music, while guitarist Tuck Ryan came up in jazz standards and the theater. Jordan and Peter have known each other since childhood and have played off and on together over the years. Jordan met Tuck in 2010 and the two bonded over their shared love of gypsy jazz and bluegrass music. After Jordan released his latest solo album “Fractured Love” in November of 2012 (which featured band member Evan Graver on drums), all four musicians teamed up to perform the album live. They quickly realized they wanted to pursue additional styles and genres, and as a result Second Hand Suits was born.
Second Hand Suits lists many influences including Fats Waller, Muddy Waters, Django Reinhardt, Rihanna, and Ryan Adams. In addition to a large amount of original work, Second Hand Suits love to perform standards from every decade, the 1920’s to the ‘70’s. They bring their youthful enthusiasm to reworking these familiar tunes in new and interesting ways. Second Hand Suits are very excited to continue playing and sharing their music. Catch them at a venue near you to hear a fresh take on a classic sound!
