Dodgy Mountain Men

You can call it “stomp-grass” or you can call what the Dodgy Mountain Men bring to the stage high-energy, home-brewed Montana music. It’s their own mashup of bluegrass, blues and rock, skillfully blended into a sound all their own. Imagine the rhythms of bluegrass, the soul of the blues and electricity of rock, all rolled into one unique experience. Their music is pure Montana magic.
