ABOUT CIRCUS MUTT
Originally formed in 2010, in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC, Circus Mutt draws from a spectrum of musical influences including rock-n-roll, jazz and bluegrass. The band cut their teeth on the road, touring literally non-stop from 2011-2018. Breweries, festivals, bars and thousands of miles of highway have been the proving ground for this group of blue-collar musicians. Behind the song-writing of Dan Falkenstein, Circus Mutt has woven a unique blend of American sounds on their first studio album “Old Dogs & New Tricks.” Live Mutt performances vary from solo/duo shows, to full-blown, 6-piece band extravaganzas. They are known for their gentlemanly manners and the good natured tail-waggin’ that comes naturally to every friendly mutt you know. Wherever they are, it is sure to be a Circus and you are surely welcome….
ABOUT GRATEFUL BROTHERS TRIO
The Grateful Brothers pay tribute to two of the richest catalogs of music in American history: The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band.
Formed in early 2016 by Zach Thigpen and Brad Crowe, The Grateful Brothers combine the catalogs of The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead. Often intertwining songs through segues and transitions, they carry out the improvisational spirit of the two groups in their own space. They use the songs as more of a template rather than adhering to strict album-style covers, creating a unique, high energy, and genuine crowd experience at every performance. The six musicians making up the band have known each other and played in various outfits with one another for upwards of ten years. The camaraderie between them is obvious and the familiarity leads to the ease of musical exploration.
