The Wheeler Brothers

The Wheeler Brothers

Formed in Austin, WHEELER BROTHERS have emerged as one of the most exciting bands breaking out of Texas. The five-piece act composed of Austin natives combines the gutsy indie vibe of the modern central Texas music scene with the longing strains of time-honored Texas folk. Brothers Nolan, Tyler and Patrick Wheeler met Danny Matthews at LSU where they spent their afternoons picking guitars and swapping stories in the bar rooms of Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Once back in Austin, the group rounded out their sound with the addition of a lifelong friend, guitarist A.J. Molyneaux. Each member brings his own musical direction and ideas to the group, and through precise vocal harmonies and a unique cast of instruments. Wheeler Brothers have created a sound that has put their name in the forefront of the Austin music scene.



Wheeler Brothers' debut album "Portraits," released in late June of 2011, was met with rave reviews on a local and national level. The release was backed by Texas swing legend Ray Benson and his label Bismeaux Records. Support from Benson, as well as a commanding presence on college radio, helped pave the way for Wheeler Brothers to roll out their first national tour in the summer of 2011. While debuting on the festival scene, Wheeler Brothers have also gained recognition supporting national acts such as Bob Schneider and Drive by Truckers. Back home in Austin, Wheeler Brothers are constantly looking for venues to accommodate their growing fan base and consistently sold out performances.

The Busted String Band

Purveyors of fine handcrafted footstompin' Missouri musical gumbo. Mark Twain would have endorsed this band had he lived to hear them. (probably)

A hodgepodge assembly of musicians that came together at Truman State University circa March of 2011 and named as such for their attempts to incorporate string band ideas into not so string band arranging, their collective financial status (or lack thereof) and the inordinately high number of strings broken by lead singer Matt Kennedy. The Busted String Band has been described as putting on high energy, versatile and footstompingly raucous performances by critics and people they know. Since their birth in Kirksville, the BSB (no...not Backstreet Boys....) has shared the stage with a variety of acts including Iron & Wine, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Brandon Jenkins, Matt Stell & the Crashers, The Damn Quails, Brett Eldredge, No Justice, Cashman, Mercer & Johnson as well as a lengthy roster of top notch North and Central Missouri bands including Billy McDow & the Bootleggers, Johnny H & the O Town Tuffs, Dandelion's Roar, Schuyler Prenger & the Dirt Road Junkies and many more
