Who’s ready for the 4th Annual Front Porch Hoedown?!

We couldn’t be happier to invite our good friends Split Lip Rayfield up to the north country for a hoedown thrown the Minneapolis way! The Mosters of Grass (Appleton WI) will be opening the night as well.

LAWRENCE, KS – From the blood-red heart of Kansas, SPLIT LIP RAYFIELD is going stronger than ever…

It’s completely fair to call these guys legends. It’s been more than 20 years since they first mashed up their aggressive stew of acoustic bluegrass instrumentation, tight country vocals, fierce metal shred and in-your-face punk sensibilities. One observer said we all “owe them a huge debt for not only defining a sound, but stretching the possibilities of the acoustic music world. Fans of Flatt & Scruggs and Metallica could find a common tent to party under.”

So yeah, they virtually invented “thrashgrass.” But then they kept right on moving as their chops, songs and selves grew stronger from hard-won experience. After five studio records and a handful of live recordings, Split Lip Rayfield has just released “On My Way.” (Release date January 1, 2017)

The Front Porch Hoedown has grown significantly over the years, changing from a fun concept into a full-on whiskey drinking shindig! While previously located on the west bank, this year we are proud to relocate the event to the Fine Line Music Cafe. Useful Jenkins hasn’t played the Fine Line in over 5 years so we need your help to blow the roof off that joint!

Ticket giveaway’s for the 4th Annual FPH will be taking place at Useful Jenkins shows over the next 2 months. Check out specific show events to see which apply.
