The Ben Miller Band out of Joplin Mo has been around for 15 years or so, playing folk, bluegrass, country type music the band calls “mudstomp”. Traditional yet something more, instruments include electric spoons and washboard with a wah-wah pedal.
When they opened for ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons said he didn’t watch an entire openers set, but he couldn’t seem to walk away from these guys. I kinda feel the same way.
Introducing Ben Miller Band – This video helps explain what the band is all about.
The Outsider – From 2014, they’re apparently huge in Europe as well.
I Don’t Want You – A mudstomp art video? Great music!
