The Mean Lids

Acoustic celtic-American folk trio, featuring Matt Turino, Miram Larson, and myself. Playing a mix of styles from instrumental reels to twin fiddle break downs to romantic ballads to western-swing, novelty sets. Currently taking the national contra-dance scene by storm, look for us at a dance festival/camp/weekend near you!

Tree Thump

Didjeridu led rock-funk from America's heartland, Fithian, IL.

[Retired] Big Grove Zydeco

Zydeco, cajun, country, rock. A 6 piece band with plenty of sound to keep everyone dancing all night long!

Lives on in the memories of those that rocked out with us on all those hot, steamy nights.

[Retired] The Music of Django Reinhardt

We used to play every 3rd Sunday at the Iron Post in Urbana, IL from 7 - 10… those were the days! All Django covers featured Djordan Kay, guitar, Josh Houtchins, bass, and myself, fiddle.
