Watch & Listen
ClusterPluck is a blend of potent homegrown harmonies and morning melodies. Utilizing a few traditional bluegrass instruments and 4 part vocal attack, The Pluck is anything but traditional. Banjo driven, Bass anchored, Washboard Slapping and Mandolin searing, ClusterPluck's original songs would fall somewhere in the Newgrass genre. With great Pop sensibility, a little Rock N' Roll swagger, and roots deep in all things Country, this music will both excite and delight listeners from all corners of life.
Useful Jenkins is a spirited group that mixes campfire mystique along with a driven acoustic rock show. Their music takes you back to the front porch with a jug of shine and a foot stompin' good time. The band's original songs are well crafted and stick in your head long after the show. Their nicely placed cover tunes span their influences which include Yonder Mountain, Grateful Dead, and some traditional bluegrass. This is a show that will make you wanna kick off your shoes and dance away your cares.
