Winsome Griffles

Winsome Griffles


Riverboat rock - a unique blend of piano, banjo, bass and high-powered drums, Winsome Griffles make a fun, danceable blend of traditional roots and hardcore rock, with clever lyrics and harmony vocals.


Winsome Griffles play an eclectic mix of Americana, Southern, and Cowboy music, giving a hardcore twist to riverboat minstrelsy.

Winsome Griffles have played Galapagos (Brooklyn), Otto's Shrunken Head (NYC), AS220 (Providence RI), O'Brien's Pub (Boston), Ash Street Saloon (Portland OR), Crush (Portland, OR), Luckey's (Eugene OR), Jake's (Olympia WA), Mocha Moo (Tacoma WA), Mendocino Pride (CA), and The Stork Club (Oakland CA).
