It’s an original cajun country rock band with deep Southern roots, making its home in the Live Music Capital of the World – Austin, Texas.
It’s the sound you want to hear at a Saturday evening barbecue: a gathering of musically inclined friends with piles of good food on the grill and plenty of beer in the cooler. It’s the sound rolling off the stage at a Texas-style crawfish boil.
It’s the straightforward, no-apologies foot stompin country sound with just a bit of bluegrass, and a dash of zydeco.
It’s songs you can whistle, tunes you can hum. The songs are about the things that connect us all and impact our lives: songs about fishing, grilling, drinking, the struggles of a working man, the joy and pride of family, the pain of leaving, and the ever-present concept of “what goes around, comes around.”
“It’s a dark sound, rising up, slip in to a shady place.” – from “Cynical at Best”
Today, The Pissant Farmers are:
Ryan Sanders – vocal/bass guitar
Greg Justus – tele
Steve Royal – drums
Since making their home in alt country music capital Austin, TX., The Pissant Farmers have had the pleasure of entertaining the fine folks who party at the Hole in the Wall, Scoot Inn, Spider House, Sam’s Town Point, Agave, Club Troubadour, Trophy’s, Frog’s Pool Hall, Frontier Bar, Carousel Lounge in Austin, TX and Last Chance Saloon in Plano, TX.
