Ballhog! – Nashville, Tenn.
Nashville’s music community is cultivating an All-star ensemble of singer-songwriters and instrumentalists playing original music based in the traditions of bluegrass, Americana, rock, folk, country and jazz.
Ballhog! is finding its diverse musical niche by featuring bluegrass instruments and gang vocals accompanied by horns and drums. The seven-piece band formed in 2000 cut its teeth in the bars of Music City and continues to play in Nashville when not traveling to weekend shows and festivals throughout the southeast.
“ … Nashville is better now. We have a weenery now, and a Tomato Festival. Or tomaaato, as some say. And a cool brass-grass band called Ball Hog … - Todd Snider, The Independent Weekly Nov. 14, 2007.
The band’s strength lies in well-thought-out musical arrangements, purposeful lyrics and contagious onstage enthusiasm.
“The certainty is that Ballhog! is the sound of a good time. Imagine the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and the Del McCoury Band climbing onto the ramshackle stage of a roadside tavern and stirring up the floor-strewn sawdust into a blinding sandstorm.” Steve Wildsmith, Maryville Daily Times April 13, 2007.

We're booking shows for the next several months right now so I'll let you know if I see any good ones in Nashville.
