Boxcar Bandits (Denton TX)
Location & Contact:
Look for the beards. That's a sure sign you've arrived at a Boxcar Bandits show.
"We're all very hairy fellows. Everybody has a beard of some form or another," explained band member Rex Emerson. "When we roll up to a place, it's like the barbarians have arrived."
Barbarians, maybe, but with bluegrass in their blood.
The groups sound is rounded out by guitar, percussion, bass, fiddle and mandolin.
"We call it 'North Texas Skunkgrass,'" Emerson said. "We're influenced by that old ragtime style."
The bands first album, "Smells Like Grass," was released in August. The nine-track record includes all original songs.
A second project is in the words. "Far Mountain Gravy" will be released later this year, Emerson said.
Performances are lively, with an emphasis on quickly paced bluegrass rhythms, Emerson said.
"A lot of people come out and start dancing around right away," Emerson said. It turns into a big party, beards and all.Download "Smells Like Grass" at iTunesDownload Boxcar Bandits at Amazon.comPress PLAY to hear "Smells Like Grass."
