How do you describe the shape shifting sound of a band that is ever-changing and always on the move? _ With a fresh rip -snortin’ approach to strong melodically driven original songs carefully crafted to have a sound all their own, the boys have been pushing their way to the forefront of the New Mexico bluegrass scene. Formed around late night jams at the prestigious Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival, they blur the lines between traditional bluegrass roots music and more contemporary styles. With playful energy and smooth singing harmonies, the Fog will wrap around you as the music drifts through the canyons of your mind. Taking you on a journey you will not soon forget. _ Tucked in the Mountains of Northern New Mexico the Foggy Memory Boys combine the unique skills of New Mexico state Mandolin Champion Jacob Hagerty on Mandolin, Andy Yeomans on acoustic guitar and vocals, The Undertaker Uncle Willie Hunton on dobro, singer songwriter extraordinaire Zephaniah Stringfield on Gretsch guitar and vocals, and Matt Mallwitz on thumping the Bass Fiddle. _ While all five are talented in their own right, FMB is definitely a case of the whole being greater than its parts. Quickly becoming one of the most exciting acoustic acts in the Southwest today. Sharing the stage with acts such as _ Tim O’brien, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Yonder Mtn. String Band, the Infamous Stringdusters, The Young Dubliners, Liver Down the River, The Jon Stickley Trio and The Kyle Tuttle Band, and Chucky Waggs. You can always count on FMB to bring the party and keep on pickin’ late into the night!
