Crooked Mile is a traditional bluegrass band. Formed from members who have been playing together off and on for at least 20 years, we approach this music with a combination of respect and a willingness to have a great time sharing it with the audience. Crooked Mile consists of four distinctive vocalists, and our instrumentation is banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and bass. We are all multi-instrumentalists, and frequent changes of instruments and parts in the band are common in our shows. The repertoire we play is rooted in the acoustic music created by bluegrass artists from the 1950s through the earliest 1970s.

Bluegrass is a vocal music, and we emphasize this with solo singing, duets, and trios. Our sets consist of songs along the continuum from hard-driving fast songs to slow ballads, and like the best bluegrass, we offer a sampling of old-time fiddle-and-banjo styles and instrumentals as well. Joel Cordle plays bass, guitar, and mandolin. Edward Hunter plays banjo, fiddle and guitar. David Rutland plays mandolin and banjo; and Michael Bordeaux plays guitar, bass, and banjo. While we choose songs that are well-known, we also offer a healthy sampling of lesser-known but equally great tunes, as well as a few originals by members of the band.

Crooked Mile was an excellent choice for our wedding reception! They were extremely professional and talented. David was very easy to communicate with, even months before the wedding. The band took our list of requests and accommodated us by learning several of our favorites in advance. They also came an hour early to set up a speaker for us to use at the ceremony. We received lots of compliments about the music at the reception- everyone loved the unique sound! I would highly recommend this band to anyone who is interested in having bluegrass music at their event!

Let me start by saying that Crooked Mile was amazing and totally set the tone for our special Blue Grass and BBQ rehearsal dinner event for close to 100 people. Coordinating with the band before the event was so easy, they were extremely accommodating and responsive and genuinely interested in creating a night to remember. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the sound and the energy that they gave off and kept asking about how I found this gem of a band. Crooked Mile is not only extremely talented but exudes the utmost professionalism mixed with warmth, care and commitment to making any event you have a true success. They rock!
