At it’s core, the band consists of Henry Kammerer (Guitar, Banjo, Vocals) and John Johnson (Buckets, Drums, Clanks, Grunts); two worn, but exuberant voices singing and shouting above a swirling mass of banjo, buckets, slide, washboard, and car parts.

At it’s core, the band consists of Henry Kammerer (Guitar, Banjo, Vocals) and John Johnson (Buckets, Drums, Clanks, Grunts); two worn, but exuberant voices singing and shouting above a swirling mass of banjo, buckets, slide, washboard, and car parts. Together, they create a visceral music that makes you want to stomp your feet, shout to the heavens, and love your neighbor. After 12 years of writhing, hypnotic stomp and shout celebrations that have left hundreds of clubs, barns and festivals drenched in sweat and covered in love, the duo continues to defy categorization.

It was Dylan, The Stones, The Band, Neil Young, Tom Petty, and so many others making something raw sound so perfect. He just grinned and turned it up louder.
