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.
Four friends brought together by a love of picking, singing and grinning, Acoustics Anonymous bridges the gap between groove and grass. Injecting gravity and soul into anything they touch, and coating it all with a shimmering layer of harmonies, the music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed. Whether its channeling the spirits of Jerry Garcia, Joe Cocker or James Taylor during a choice cover or melting it all together for an original, Acoustics Anonymous can be found first and foremost playing live: bringing people together and making them smile, sing, sigh, laugh and dance - that's what it's all about, right?
Old Salt Union
Old Salt Union was formed in 2011 by long-time friends Dustin Eiskant (guitar/ lead vocal), Ryan Murphey (banjo), and Justin Wallace (mandolin/ piano). In May of 2012, Old Salt Union became complete with the addition of John Brighton (violin/ mandolin) and Jesse Farrar (bass). Each member of Old Salt Union fills multiple roles in the band by playing various instruments and contributing vocal harmonies. Amongst the five men in Old Salt Union, from ages 23-30, there is over 70 years of musical training and experience. This diversity allows for flexibility in composition and in live performances. The end result is a well-rounded high-energy sound, with obvious bluegrass roots.
