Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and drum provide the pulse that drives their original music. They are currently finishing up their 3rd album (Spring 2019 release), which is being produced by Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles. They are supporting Trampled By Turtles on tour in January.
Founded in late 2013, Them Coulee Boys have quickly become a force on the Midwest music scene. Them Coulee Boys live shows are energetic affairs, with a constant passion and sincerity evident in each song they play. Some songs it’s an infectious stomp, inviting the listener to dance along. Driving banjo, guitar, mandolin, and bass provide a backdrop for fast-paced narratives about love and life, ordinary or incredible. Other songs leave room for space, with ambient electric banjo and finger picked instrumentation accompany songs dealing with the harsh realities of things we cannot control. These are songs from a band that is not afraid to take chances. These are songs from a band that’s comfortable stripped down, or turned way up. These songs are deeply personal and entirely relatable. Maybe that’s what makes theses songs so easy to sing along with, and these performances so moving. You’re invited to feel a whole range of emotions, and that makes for shows that you won’t soon forget.
[Them Coulee Boys] are sure to kick down an equal dose of punk-folk calamity and Americana balladry, 4-part harmonies learned in dive bars and church basements, and a banjo stomp so infective you are sure to join with abandon.
