Four friends brought together by a love of picking, singing and grinning, Acoustics Anonymous bridges the gap between groove and grass. Injecting gravity and soul into whatever they play, and coating it all with a shimmering layer of harmonies, the music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed. Whether its channeling the spirits of Jerry Garcia, Joe Cocker or James Taylor during a choice cover or melting it all together for an original, Acoustics Anonymous can be found first and foremost playing live: bringing people together and making them smile, sing, laugh and dance – that’s what it’s all about, right? The band features a rotating cast of drummers (Dave Clark of The Schwag, Sam Niehaus of Reelfoot, and on occasion, Rob Koritz of Dark Star Orchestra), so each show brings with it a varied style. The band formed in September 2012 and in its short career has shared bills with such renowned acts as Del McCoury Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal and The Giving Tree Band, as well as playing frequent shows with the slew of great talent in and around their hometown, St. Louis.
