The best kept secret in music


"The Grand Ole Opry Plaza Party in Full Swing for the Summer"

To start out the party, Matt Lindahl and the Purity Milk Jug Band wowed the crowd with their wonderful style of bluegrass music. You may remember that Matt was the 3rd place contestant on USA Networks Nashville Star television show in 2004.
Matt Lindahl and the Purity Milk Jug Band performed two shows getting a wonderful reception from the audience at both shows. Although he is somewhat of a bluegrass/americana performer now, he did take requests from the audience.
During the 2nd show he recieved a request from a fan listening from Pennsylvania on a cell phone. He performed also "Grampa's Song" and "Jump off the Bridge" which are songs he performed during the Nashville Star show.

It was great hearing those old favorites again. Someone then requested "The Curtis Boys" much to my delight. This is my favorite Matt Lindahl song.

Along with the request, the band each took turns singing lead. The harmonies are very close and the musicianship is great! Among the other songs performed were "How Country Girls Can Love", "Rolling In My Sweet Baby's Arms" among other bluegrass favorites. You can tell the close friendship among these guys. It was wonderful to watch Matt Lindahl and the Purity Milk Jug Band work their magic again. They always give a show that is pure entertainment and pleasure.

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Milk Jug Band explores their peripatetic meanderings in verse, all the while staying true to their southern roots. The MJB explores the traditional canon of bluegrass music by using narrative, yet challenges the form by blending other rhythms, sheer physicality in performance, and by the contemporary nature of the work. They are influenced by pretty much all of their predecessors, including Mississippi John Hurt, Sam Cooke, Vivaldi, Ralph Stanley, Bob Marley to more contemporary artists such as Todd Snider, Gillian Welch, and Townes van Zant.
It all began in Monroe, GA, where Matt, Jay, and Chris grew up together. As each began traveling internationally, they united back in Nashville, TN now with Andy Pond picking the banjo.
