Them Coulee Boys
November 27, 2020 | Jamf Theatre
Them Coulee Boys craft a brand of Americana that blends punk, bluegrass, and rock & roll. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, and drum provide the pulse that drives their original music. In the Fall of 2019 they released their 3rd album Die Happy (Lo-Hi Records), which was produced by Dave Simonett of Trampled By Turtles.
Founded in late 2013, Them Coulee Boys have quickly become a force on the Midwest music scene. Them Coulee Boys live shows are energetic affairs, with a constant passion and sincerity evident in each song they play. Some songs it's an infectious stomp, inviting the listener to dance along. Driving banjo, guitar, mandolin, and bass provide a backdrop for fast-paced narratives about love and life, ordinary or incredible. Other songs leave room for space, with ambient electric banjo and finger picked instrumentation accompany songs dealing with the harsh realities of things we cannot control. These are songs from a band that is not afraid to take chances. These are songs from a band that's comfortable stripped down, or turned way up. These songs are deeply personal and entirely relatable. Maybe that's what makes these songs so easy to sing along with, and these performances so moving. You're invited to feel a whole range of emotions, and that makes for shows that you won't soon forget.
Reviews of their latest record:
“But Them Coulee Boys are different. Their songs are wide. For as many fun, upbeat bangers that there are in the setlist, there’s as many pivots to emotional depths traditional bluegrass rarely touches. And therein lies what makes this band a standout, that willingness
to dive deep, and it’s what’s made these songs and these musicians resonate more and more to greater swaths of music fans worldwide.”

“There is very little on this tremendous album that is 'simple' or easy to unravel, with excellent lyrics and arrangements that ultimately make every song a mini-cinematic epic. I would be surprised if we hear a more 'complete' album this year. It could even be the
album that eventually defines the career of this band.”
Tickets are $10 plus fees.
