Bill, Jim, Ed, and Gary have come together as The Muleskinner Band, bringing their individual musical backgrounds, experiences, and influences with them. An evening with the Muleskinners will certainly lead one to the conclusion that none are willing to abandon their musical heritages. Hence, the musical offerings on a given evening will span Big Mon to Buck, Patsy to Merle, Gospel to the Drifters, Doobie Brothers to Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Great vocal harmony is a centerpiece of every Muleskinner rendering, as is solid instrumental backing and soloing. An evening with the Muleskinners will certainly include frequent and prolific storytelling, humor, and good-hearted dialogue with the audience. We hope that this encourages you to "come give The Muleskinner Band a listen."
