From Minneapolis, MN, The Boys n’ the Barrels are a modern Bluegrass band. With influences ranging from Old-time to Jazz and Rock, the Boys appeal to both traditional and contemporary tastes. Comprised of six members, instrumentation includes Banjo, Guitar, Fiddle, Mandolin, Harmonica, Upright Bass, and light Percussion. Their sound is energetic and creative. A deep, introspective message underlines the up-tempo, foot thumping melodies and hooks as The Boys explore subjects such as love, philosophy, environmentalism, booze, and death.
