As classic as cast iron, as space-age as a flying car! The Plate Scrapers are serving up their own flavor of bluegrass by way of a winding wormhole through folk, jazz, and heavy metal dimensions. So grab yourself a thick slice of nostalgia, slap on a side of mind-bending originality, and top it off with some piping-hit pickin’, and let this hungry bunch “take you out of this atmosphere.”

The Plate Scrapers have gained a reputation from their live performances as solid musicians who are sure to have you singing along right before they break it down with some serious picking. Through their charisma on stage, it’s obvious that these guys genuinely love what they do. That charisma does not disappear as soon as the mics are unplugged however; The Plate Scrapers are immensely appreciative of their fans, and show it by often leading them in all out bluegrass jams complete with beer drinking, picking, and grinning. This passion-driven group consists of Brett Kretzer (Mandolin, Vocals) Derek Kretzer (Banjo, Vocals) and Andrew Jordan (Guitar, Vocals) Kevin Johnson (Upright Bass) and Jody Mosser (Resophonic Guitar, Vocals).
