|...is what you get when you make a band out of world- travelers, barroom regulars, and classically trained musicians.
Drawing on decades of musical influences, MB boasts a deep appreciation for the history and soul of music, and a setlist that spans all genres dating back to the 1930s...Blending folk, country & bluegrass with electric rock and blues – the band has created a catalouge of original music that refuses to fall into any one genre, and by using more-than-a-handful of vintage and modern instruments, MB has perfected a deep, smokey sound that most bands don’t even attempt these days. Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Tom Waits, and Muddy Waters Mixed Business throws the kitchen sink at a crowd — delivering skilled playing and tight vocal harmonies.
Based in Baltimore and formed in 2007, the band uses an amazing combination of over ten acoustic and electric instruments – from guitars to the upright bass, from piano to drums and percussion, from the mandolin to the banjo, and steel drums to the accordion to produce an ever changing musical experience... which has allowed Mixed Business one of the busiest local music schedules around — with over 40 venues and counting since 2007 — in the Balt. / Annap. / Wash D.C. area and far beyond!
