Join the rebellion and celebrate with The Prickers the release of our very first spirits!
The Prickers sound is a collision of marching band brass, burning boots kickin’, old-skool hip-hop kick drum thumpin’, saloon ragtime piano pounding, guitar strumming and lyrical song writing that the band has recently coined “Cluster Folk”. The music has roots in every corner of the musical garden…no stone is left unturned. The band like its namesake can be a tangled wall of sound one moment and a delicately complex form the next. The songs are haunting at times, drawing from life’s curved roads, meandering and pondering the many plights of modern life, and other times the music is a ruckus rowdy jamboree complete with the classic fiddle banjo backbone that makes it so hard to sit down. The evolution of the band continues, with the release of their second full length album “Great Big Hearts” the band consciously recreated their sound, bringing in a multitude of different instruments to compliment the new material. Harmonium, Baritone and Tabla make appearances on songs along with Piano, Banjo, Trumpet, Sousaphone, Guitar, Fiddle and Drums that have been the bands favorite instruments over the last few years. While paying homage to some of the great traditional music The Prickers have never been purveyors of tradition. The excitement is in the play between the two worlds of future and past, and never becoming to rooted to any one form or style.
Band Members: Karl Neubauer, Carrie Blackwood-Kennedy"Jr.", "Modest" Mike Fargnoli , Aaron Pridmore, "Raging" Roy Wells, and Jessie Cardinale!
