Watch & Listen
Well, we are just doing what we like to do the best way we know how. We are a touring band from Eureka Springs, Arkansas, playing music to make ourselves happy and hopefully entertain some of you along the way. We play about 250 shows a year ,some large venues and some not so large, we have shared the stage with too many bands to name here, some well known bands and some not so well known. Drop a little note in our inbox if you have something interesting to say. We will be coming your way sooner or later, see you all of the sudden like.
This southern Illinois based hillbilly trio's unique sound is comprised of banjoist/vocalist Joe McCamish's old timey voice and banjo licks, upright bassist Randy Hill's rockabilly slap, and accordionist Alex Pape's 'hillbilly accordion' styles. Whistle Pigs started as a house band at PK's in Carbondale,IL, a gig that lasted for two and a half years only to end when the whistle pigs touring schedule interfered with the weekly residency. The band debuted in 2008 with their independently produced album 'Original Album' with songs written by McCamish and featuring a fiddle and washboard. Several hundred copies were sold in the first few months following it's release and it's successes afforded the group more gigs and extensive touring of their region, making them one of the area's favorite bands. Whistle Pigs shared the stage with such great and diverse acts as Split Lip Rayfield, Darrell Worrley, Mountain Sprout, Infamous String Dusters, The Dirt Dobbers, and Joe Diffey. The groups second release, 'Long Term Plan', followed a year later showing the maturing songwriting skills of McCamish and a tight sound that only comes from constant gigging. Late 2010 brought the newest release 'Bless Your Hearts and Livers' on the MudStomp label, featuring Steve Fishell on pedal steel and dobro and recorded at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville, TN.
Hailing from the great state of Kansas, Deadman Flats hits you hard with a finger-bleeding, head-banging, neck-breaking dose of what can be described as the definition of "Redneckery". With their first album "Antlers" and a second one in the works, DMF can be seen at Americas best bars, brothels and speakeasies amidst a haze of sweat and cheap beer, or as we like to call it, fuel.
The Flood Brothers
The Flood Brothers have been playing as a duo since 2001, offering up renditions of high energy traditional music. In 2006 they formed a band with Kent and Dan Burnside (Kent Burnside and the New Generation), a grandson and son, respectively, of the legendary R.L. BURNSIDE, and began extensively touring the West Coast, Midwest, and South, playing classic venues such as Gip's Place down in Bessemer, Al; The House of Blues, Chicago; Buddy Guy's Legends, Chicago; Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club, Clarksdale, MS; and the Knitting Factory, Hollywood, CA. After playing with Kent for 5 years and sharing the stage with the likes of Buddy Guy, Kenny Brown, Bobby Rush and Cedric, Duwayne, and Garry Burnside, they thought it was time to once again dial in on the duo.
The Kay Brothers
~ Bonafide Hootin' n' Hollerin' Hillbillyin' Ozark Stompgrass and What Not ~
The spirit of Missouri 'Stompgrass' lives on in this brand spankin' new quartet, The Kay Brothers. Though the group was born last night, the members are certainly no strangers to the Midwest music scene. Hailing from such bands as The Hipnecks, The Hatrick, Mary & the Giant, and even a metal band - Ghost in the Machine - the players have been burning barns down since they were knee-high's and can chug moonshine without shedding a single tear. Armed with Upright Bass, Fiddle, Guitar, Harmonicas, bass drum, washboard, and sibling harmonies, they make a lot of noise... Just be careful not to crack a heel.
