"The Junkyard Mongrels function like a well oiled machine on stage, but you'd never be able to tell from listening to them or watching their performance. Their tight performance is undercover beneath a raucous tension that anything could go off the rails at any time. The music draws upon rockabilly, country, folk, and blues – all the classic Americana you know and love – but their energy is somehow more pure than the average band that tries to approach these genres. They're pure early 20th century showmanship. They can make you sweat and flail, and they can make you slow dance and two step. Their most pure ability though is their command over their audience's emotions. You want to dance and you want to sing along, whether you know the words or not. They just light a fire in your soul. If you ever get a chance to see them, don't miss it. It's a barn stomping affair when they play, and they truly tear the house down."
