Strumbucket is a five-piece “twang-funk” band from Jackson, Wyoming known for their colorful multi-genre live shows. Drawing from a wide range of sounds, their original music weaves together funked bass grooves, banjo driven twang, latin beats, electro-psych synth lines, and classic rock guitar. Listening to the group’s offerings, one gets the sense that a good laugh is one piece of the puzzle that keeps the fun meter in check.
Forming in 2018, the band has grown outside the local Jackson music scene, playing everything from rowdy bar gigs to fun-filled community events, local venues to supporting acts such as JoJo Herman (Widespread Panic), DJ Williams’ Shot’s Fired, Polyrhythmics, and The Ghost of Paul Revere along the way.
The band consists of Peter Henderson (drums), Lavender Jones (bass, vocals), Grove Miller (keys), Pat Bottini (lead guitar), and Alex Blackwelder (banjo, lead vocals). The band released their first full length album, Hold On, I’m Strummin’, in July of 2022.
Strumbucket is influenced by the likes of The Meters, Little Feat, and one non-mainstream band for which they’re known to cover frequently, Ween.
Mirage Electric is a local Bozeman band that blends funk and rock to create high-energy performances. With a mix of soulful melodies, groovy basslines, and hard-hitting drum beats, their music is sure to get the crowd moving. The band is led by one of Bozeman’s brightest talents, keyboardist Chace McNinch, whose skill and passion for music shine through in every performance. With their infectious energy and crowd-pleasing sound, Mirage Electric promises to have the audience singing and dancing along.
