It’s pretty weird to hear an Americana band set down the guitars after a beer-soaked shout-along and proceed to sing the next tune over a preset electronic drum beat. But the Felice Brothers make it work. Last year’s Celebration, Florida marked a departure from the Catskill band’s early rustic sound, but the spirit from that early work lived on at Jillian’s on May 11, as the band ran through renditions of crowd favorites “Run Chicken Run” and “Take This Bread,” which dovetailed nicely with an opening set from Eastbound Jesus.
