Hey Folks! Been a long time…

Sorry we’ve been so silent for the last x amount of months. Big changes have been in the air for us and we’ve taken a while to process it all! For those of you who don’t know, our dear brother and band mate Clyde Netzley IV has departed the group. Clyde left Missoula to pursue other passions and while we miss his percussion, big heart and smile, we wish him only the best. It is a truly unique opportunity to play music with someone like Clyde and We all feel incredibly blessed for the times we got to spend on the stage, the road and the journey with him.

We knew Clyde was leaving for some time but weren’t really sure what to do about. His approach to percussion is a tough one to replace. After many months of rest and refocusing our priorities for a while, we decided to keep getting out as a three piece and have played some shows around the Missoula area. To our relief it feels great and we’re finding new songs and new jams every time we get together. We are continuing to pursue new connections with different musicians and are planning a August run to Washington to visit our friends at Ollala Bluegrass festival with a different percussionist. Keep your eyes peeled and let us know what ya think!

We’re so thankful for the continuous support we get from those we’ve met along this adventure and encourage you to keep going with us – we’ve got more planned in our future! With the new songs starting to come we’d like to get back in the studio soon and give y’all some more treats! More dates coming soon so look out!

Hey everybody!

Been a while since we updated our site…sorry about that! It’s been a great summer, alternating busy weekends full of gigs with taking some time for ourselves personally. Had a lot of good adventures, but now we’re gearing up for another big one…West Coast, we’re coming back for ya in just a few weeks! Here’s the whole list of dates:

It’s a similar run to what we did last year at this time, heading down to San Fran for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and playing lots of shows along the way. This time though, we’re adding another weekend to the mix! We’ll be making events pages for all these on the Facebook and putting up more time sensitive news there too so keep an eye out. Also, we’re always looking for help out on the road with promotion, cool poster art, etc. If you can help us out shoot us a message at dodgymtnmen@gmail.com. Can’t wait to see y’all out on the road!

Happy April everybody!

We’ve had an amazing spring so far! Tour was all we could have hoped for – a constant stream of old friends and new ones, fantastic venues, good turnouts, tasty beer, and lots and lots of tunes! We hope to hit some of the same spots up when we head out to Olalla Bluegrass and Beyond Fest this August so keep an eye out!

We’ve been pretty busy since getting home and will be trying to maintain a steady pace with gigs while we plan ahead for some more adventures this summer/fall, and talk of hitting the studio again this fall is starting to build! Keep watching the Facebook for more news!

Alright! It must be spring, because we’re loading up the van and hittin’ the road!

Keep an eye on our dates here and on our facebook page – we’ll be doing about 10 shows in two weeks all around the Northwest, and then coming home to play a FREE show with the Lil’ Smokies at the newly revamped Top Hat! Looks and sounds great in there and we can’t wait to try out that stage! But we’re looking forward to all the shows in between – gonna see some old friends at a few familiar spots (what’s up Seattle, Portland and Hood River!) but we’ll be making our debut performance in a lot of towns too so spread the word!

This is just the beginning of a killer year for us: we’ll be sharing the stage with Toubab Krewe and Pert Near Sandstone in April and are working on a handful of killer festival appearances this summer. And when we’re not on stage we’re gonna stay hard at work in other ways…stay tuned!

Good news! We’ve advanced into the top three finalists of the Zoo Music Awards! For those that don’t know, over 180 bands and artists submitted to this inaugural event, and the public voted on the top five in each of the nine categories. The top five competed in a showcase this Saturday to the reception of audience votes and a panel of judges, and we moved on to the top three along with Bozeman bluegrass bands Flatt Cheddar and Kitchen Dwellers!

Now, we get to rest on our laurels because it’s all up to the judges at this point. The awards ceremony is on March 2 at the Wilma Theater, and will be a red-carpet, grammys-style ceremony with performances by local bands and a headline show by Seattle band The Moondoggies. They’ll be announcing the winners of each category, but we’re happy to even make the running – thanks for the incredible outpouring of support from everybody in the voting process! We couldn’t have made it this far without ya!

Anyways, our next gig is this Friday up at the Craggy Range in Whitefish, so we hope to see some Northerner friends up there! Watch the Facebook for upcoming announcements and we hope to catch ya either in Whitefish or at the Zoo Music Awards March 2!
