In the current flux of the music business, the new kings of the realm are the YouTube vloggers and cover artists playing the classic tracks of yesteryear. Steve 'n' Seagulls sort of unintentionally figured out how to be both. The band's version of “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC has been especially popular, clocking in over 83 million views on YouTube.
By nature, Steve ’n’ Seagulls is a Finnish band playing bluegrass(ish) versions of classic hard rock tracks (and a few originals in the mix) with an astonishing arsenal of acoustic instruments, including accordion, banjo, Cajon, double bass, and drums. Dressed in overalls, beaver hats and other clodhopper paraphernalia, they look like preposterous stereotypes of your average moonshining, tobacco-chewing corn-fed rednecks of bygone days.
