Whiskey Bent Valley, The Stampede String Band

When: Fri., Oct. 24, 9 p.m. 2014

Now these boys will take you through the hills of ol' kentucky, bearing the stores, traditions and liquor that date back a century. This old-time band delivers with an intensity that would knock the sock right off of their forefathers feet.

Hailing from the back woods of Pee-Wee Valley, Kentucky, The Whiskey Bent Valley Boys pay homage to their southern king— songs from the tobacco fields to the rivers, iron skillets to moonshine stills, upbeat and professional, the band posesses the skill to honor history and preserve the instruments, their style and every authentic, nuance of the day. With their divers fashion sense and stage. From overalls to string ties, straw hats to silk vests, along with a turbo-charged performance, their approach breathes fire into this vintage genre.

The Stampede String Band's aggressive arrangements and powerful old-time harmonies mix Bill Monroe-style bluegrass with Mellencamp- flavored radio rock for a unique Americana sound. Featuring mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, and harmonica, this four-piece brings huge harmonies, improvisational instrumentation, and a lot of fun to every venue. The band is currently touring in support of their first album, Moonsville.

Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9. 21+

Price: $10
