    Feb 21

    Raleigh, NC, US | 8:00pm

    On Saturday, February 21st, Virginia's Wrinkle Neck Mules will host a CD RELEASE PARTY at the Southland Ballroom in Raleigh. The one and only Possum Jenkins will open the show!! Exploring the fertile crossroads between rock and country, Wrinkle Neck Mules is essentially a rock band with a country-bluegrass heart, or perhaps vice versa. Don Imus once said on his show that the Wrinkle Neck Mules “don’t have what it takes to make it”. Despite Don’s prediction, the band has garnered a cult following in their 14+ years of creating what The Independent of Raleigh, NC calls a “righteous Americana mishmash”. The band is comprised of Andy Stepanian on lead and harmony vocals, guitars and mandolin and Chase Heard, also on lead and harmony vocals, guitar and banjo with Mason Brent on harmony vocals, guitar, mandolin and pedal steel, Brian Gregory also harmony vocals and, bass and Stuart Gunter playing drums and backing vocals. They are all excellent musicians as evidenced by the power and togetherness of the songs on their five albums. They are not only a Southern Rock band that is as good as any of their peers but the same can be applied to their mastery of country rock, even sometimes edging towards bluegrass, albeit a rocked up modern version of it! A recent bio of the band described them as ‘a rock skeleton with bluegrass blood and country skin,’which probably sums them up perfectly and without any exaggeration at all! In their history, the band has played with everyone from Willie Nelson to Ratt and recorded with folks such as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Their music has appeared in movies on ESPN Outdoors and commercials for Geico Insurance. To date, they have recorded 5 albums on Atlanta’s Lower 40 Records and Germany’s Blue Rose. They will release a new album at this show.

Bio: Call it alt. country. Call it Southern rock. Call it Americana. Call it shake-yo-ass blues-fried boogie with flashes of raucous cow punk. Call it a honky tonk Chinese fire drill. Any one of those musical descriptors could hit the mark during a Possum Jenkins show and be dead on.
