And with the road calling; The Damphools are sure to find their way to a juke joint near you. The Damphools were founded by banjo player and renaissance man Chuy Hartman and spiritual guru and lyricist Tony “Burger” Pfau (Guitar, Vox). While playing the back alleys and barns of rural Idaho, the pair found J.R. Hood (Guitar, Vox) from Texas behind the local tavern. Also, joining the band were Sir Kent Mueller and his upright bass, Pamela.
James Fisher (Drums) and Rick “Taco” Wakefield (harmonica) were next to round out the lineup. The music is classic, loose and country with elements of rockabilly, rock-n-roll and cosmic Americana. The Damphools live shows are the band’s shining pride. Ranging from manic honky tonk originals, twang boogie, and subtle renditions of classic country and bluegrass songs, The Damphools keep the shows interesting and diverse. They take the crowd through the outer universe of American country and hillbilly music while packing the dance floor with cretins, sinners, heathens, and a ton of pretty girls.
Playing over 120 shows a year, just in Idaho, the band looks forward to traveling the country with their honky tonk revue. So as the tale unfolds; The Damphools will be keeping biscuits in their bellies, their wheels in between the lines and their amps on 11. “God willin’ and if the creeks don’t rise”- The Damphools will see ya down the road.
