Grassy Knoll Boys Grassy Knoll Boys - Austin, TX

Leaning into a single microphone for a three-part harmony, stepping back to make room for a burning banjo break or skirting around the upright bass, the Grassy Knoll Boys look exactly like what they started out as – five musicians who loved bluegrass enough to learn how to nail the hot picking and tight harmony singing that virtuosic style requires. A closer listen, however, reveals a band with much more on its mind than just reproducing the music of an earlier era.

Drop Trio Drop Trio - Austin, TX

" Drop Trio is anchored by a rhythm section tighter than the Texas education budget and a Rhodes keyboard that gets pushed to its limits on every cut. Think Medeski Martin and Wood, without their lame DJ, and then add in some elements of bayou funk and acid-tinged San Francisco hipness, and you're close to describing the sound of their instrumental jams". - Matt Sonzala
