Mission Mountain Wood Band - In Without Knocking 0U812
Country Rock Band plays a variety of songs, some a tifle old-fashioned, but that's part of it's charm. The band has been influenced by a number of sources from folk, to such modern bands as C,S,N&Y to traditional western cowboy songs. The five-man band sings well together and uses restrained instrumentation.
Best cuts: Showboat, Sweet Maria, Dancin is Dancin
Dealers: Band tours extensively in College circuit. - Billboard Magazine

Bio

"When the 'Wood Band' emerged, our society, even in Montana, was fragmenting, young versus old, hippies versus straights, environmentalists versus developers, with music splintering along with the culture: Santana versus the Lettermen, if you will.
And here came this band, hailing from the four corners of Montana, melding rock, blues, bluegrass, barbershop, show tunes . . . the Mickey Mouse theme . . . and the National Anthem . . . all in four-part harmony. It was like radio used to be, creative, surprising, romantic, energizing. Their audience was as eclectic as their music; bankers, bikers, lawyers, loggers, jocks, artists, hippies, farm kids, greeks, geeks, professors and dropouts.
Unlike the prevailing musical stage attitude of the day, which was to riff endlessly in some psychedelic trance off behind the speakers, Mission Mountain hit the stage in a detonation of energy and personality and built a show over the course of the night-- in a non-stop continuum--from a low boil to a house fire and burnt us all up in the blaze.
With propulsive guitar, drum, banjo, bass, fiddle and roguish joie de vivre', they blew apart the generation and culture gaps in their audience everywhere they went, coalescing us, with their musical and rhythmic bravado, reverence for tradition and irreverence for cliche', into a vast and enduring tribe of uplifted spirits.
