Jimbo Mathus

The late Memphis producer Jim Dickinson once called Jimbo Mathus “the singing voice of Huck Finn.” Outside the South, Mathus is likely known as the ringleader of the hyper-ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, however, Mathus is the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone Southern music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. Think Delta highways, bowling-pin Budweisers and “innerplanetary honky-tonk” for the masses.

Jimbo Mathus remains a rising-star powerhouse that feeds the soul. His latest band, The Tri-State Coalition, features solid talent cut from the same Delta cloth. Mathus describes Tri-State’s sound as “…a true Southern amalgam of blues, white country, soul and rock-n-roll. As Dickinson would say, ‘If you don’t like this, there is seriously something wrong with you.’”

Dr. Sick (of the Squirrel Nut Zippers)

DR. SICK is a man of many words, hats, talents, and names. Known far and wide as “FiddleKiller,” he is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing violin (and all other strings), guitar, piano, drums, harmonica, brass, and homemade instruments, to name a few. A powerful baritone singer and comic song writer, he is also an international announcer/emcee of burlesque, vaudeville, and circus variety shows. After honing his jazz and theater skills while performing for 3 years in the Asylum Street Spankers (Austin, TX), he took a new direction towards circus and burlesque, co-founding the Carousel Cabaret in 2006 (Austin, TX) and traveling as musical director with the 999 EYES Freakshow. He currently leads 3 bands in New Orleans (This Stunted Sextette, The Late Greats, The Bad Meters) and is full time member to others (The Salt Wives, The Rotten Cores, Russell Welch Hot Quartet, Cantiga, That Damned Band).
