The Bodarks / Bio

The Bodarks are a "hootenanny" string band hailing from McKinney, Texas (est. 2012). One of 2013's Rising Star finalists selected by Shiner Bock/Records and KHYI 95.3FM, and one of five north Texas bands chosen for the Wakarusa Winter Classic 2014, they are wildly entertaining to audiences of all ages and tastes. Donnie Nelson of the Dallas Mavericks described them as a band who creates its own genre, crashing through all others as they convert popular music into a hoedown. And Brett Dillon of KHYI had this to say of a recent performance: "Great harmonies, great vocals, and great job of connecting with the crowd and trying to bring us up on stage." To see The Bodarks live is porch-stompin', fiddle-sawin', bass-slappin' fun as they dig up the roots from which today's music grew and the American soul was nurtured.
