Nearly a decade ago, Jackass Flats began their journey as a bluegrass band chasing the scene up and down the east coast: country festivals in the middle of nowhere, bars, dives, late nights, busking in the cities, life in a van–these things will leave you with stories to tell and that’s exactly what Jackass Flats did; releasing two acclaimed albums of original songwriting: “Purgatory Mountain” and “Greetings From Jackass Flats”. The boys kept the old van, but soon found themselves playing the region’s premiere stages and festivals.

As Jackass Flats closes in on a decade of existence, they’ve expanded their line up to include drums, keys, and pedal steel–propelling their sound from string band to “full tilt Americana juggernaut”. With so many instruments at their disposal, the typical set finds the band everywhere from bluegrass, rockabilly, honky tonk, country, western swing, all with the energy and edge that has made the Jackass Flats show a must see.

In June of 2011 the boys released their album, “Rusty Feeling.” The album was recorded and produced by Bobby Read (Bruce Hornsby Band, Keller Williams). An album whose songs range from raucous and rowdy bluegrass, to the textured and melodic sounds of progressive (non-nashville) country.
