Carrie Nation And The Speakeasy
is a high-energy "Brass 'n' Grass" sextet from Wichita, KS. The band, whose sound has been described as “...a stagecoach in overdrive”, has brought their eclectic blend of bluegrass, ska, punk, and dixieland to packed clubs, basements, and festivals across the US since their inception in the spring of 2007.

CNS has built a solid following playing 47 states and 5 countries with their energetic live show and ability to fit on the bill with acts ranging from bluegrass to rockabilly; punk to ska. As the banjo rolls over rhythmic guitar, breakneck mandolin solos melt into blaring trombone and trumpet lines, while the standup bass and feed-bucket-trap-set churn out driving rhythms that carry the force of a Kansas freight train

Dead Soldiers
Memphis is both the cradle and grave of American music, home of the dance and the dirge. Sometimes it sounds like bluegrass, sometimes like honky tonk, sometimes rock, and sometimes soul, but it never sounds grander than when Dead Soldiers are in the trenches, and the troops are plied with whiskey.
