Inspired greatly by the traditional styles of Appalachia as well as the modern sounds of experimental and jam oriented music, Plank Stompers is a force to be reckoned with. Although their musical roots were formed in the acoustic-laden world of bluegrass and old-time, their current sound blends traditional and modern instrumentation, including mandolin (Erik Burnham), keyboard/trumpet (Rudy Bzdyk), drums (Danny Shyti), electric guitar (Will Spaulding) and electric bass (Ben Walters). While their sound is a fusion of timeless American music styles, it is also completely their own. Plank Stompers make sure that every show is memorable and musically enlightening. Spinning improvised solos and licks through a maze of deep grooves that speak of country, blues, jazz, jam, and bluegrass, Plank Stompers offer original music that is sure to energize and entertain a wide audience, spanning many tastes and age groups.
