In the tricked-out garage of a big white house on a hill beneath the Blue Ridge near Asheville, N.C., music was made. Mutt music, to be precise.
Mutt music happens when two Pennsylvania boys and a fella from North Carolina get together, combining the shared influences of rock ‘n roll, reggae, Jazz, and bluegrass while remaining true to their working class roots and country-lovin’ sentiments. Grass-roots rockgrass. Rock-roots grassgrass. Corn liquor meets craft beer with a Hot Toddy chaser.
Since forming in 2009, the band – Dan on guitar/vocals, Seth on mandolin/vocals and Dusty on percussion–has toured hard, putting in over 35,000 miles in 2012 alone. They are known for their raucous sound, gentlemanly manners and the good-natured foot-stompin’ and tail-waggin’ that comes naturally to every friendly mutt you know. Circus Mutt brings a rootsy, funky, twangy twist to their songs and performances.
