He may be "gettin by on Central Time" but St. Louis' own Pokey LeFarge has made the big time out East.

The 30-year-old and his band appeared with David Letterman on Late Night with David Letterman last night to huge applause and an enthusiastic Letterman. Their musical style is known as "American Roots" genre. Letterman joked about going on tour with the band at the end of their performance. 





According to his bio, Andrew Heissler aka Pokey LaFarge took an interest in history and literature during his childhood and was greatly influenced by his grandfathers. One was a member of the St. Louis Banjo Club, who gave Pokey his first guitar and tenor banjo. The other, an amateur historian, taught LaFarge about the American Civil War and World War II.  

LeFarge met Ryan Koenig and Joey Glynn of the St. Louis band The Rum Drum Ramblers while he was playing on a street in Asheville, North Carolina. Adam Hoskins joined Glynn and Koenig to form the South City Three. As of late 2012 / early 2013, the group were joined by TJ Muller (cornet) and Chloe Feoranzo (clarinet).
