If Pickled Okra’s special brand of Americana music could be described, you might call it “old-school, porch-settin’, sing into a can-style bluegrass”. If you ask one of the members of the band they’ll tell you it's “ham and cheese grass”. Either way this group made up of two married couples (all characters in their own right), is undeniably charming and entertaining - not to mention pretty darn talented. Yes they know their bluegrass licks and aren’t afraid to show ‘em off, but their music is full of ideas borrowed from old time fiddle tunes, jazzy delta blues, pop, rock, reggae and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own quirky way. It’s kind of like stepping back in time, but with indoor plumbing.

Thanks to all of you who can out to see us in 2012 - It was amazing year!
In Feb we had our 1st multi state tour (6 states over the course of a month). In March we played on Pepper Proud's first CD. In April we had our first Karaokegrass. In May Paisley lost her dear mother Ruby Erck not the first death in her life but the first loss of a parent - not fun. In June we enjoyed our 2nd annual Fifty Fest out in Mawntana (I know, thats not a first but it's noteworthy). In July we experienced our first band competition at Rockygrass in Colorado. In Sept we played our fist rockstar wedding where we witnessed Brandi Carlile and Catherine Shepard taking their vows. We also played our first bluegrass festival that month in George. In October we passed the 400 fans mark on Facebook (please "like" us if you're into that sort of thing) and took our first trip to Appalachia for Pepper's cd release party! In Dec We survived our 1st apocalypse and we played our 1st New Years eve gig! It was a real good time and this year should be even better!
