Kudzu Kings
Kudzu Kings Kudzu Kings are a musical outfit from Oxford, MS. Their sound is a unique blend of country, bluegrass and improvisational rock & roll. The band was actively together for almost ten years (1994-2003). In those years together, the band gained moderate success in the Southeast, Colorado, and Texas filling several prominent music venues, in addition to spreading their talent the rest of the nation and Canada with a number of successful tours. They have shared the stage many times with Widespread Panic (whom with longtime Kudzu guitarist George McConnell eventually joined up with in 2002 and has since left) as well as with many other prominent artists of that time (including Bob Weir & Ratdog, Banyan, Leftover Salmon, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Junior Brown and Aquarium Rescue Unit, just to name a few). Kudzu Kings have also welcomed a number of guest musicians to collaborate over the years (sometimes sitting in for several shows for absent members) including Chris Etheridge (Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson), Bucky Baxter (pedal steel and guitar w/ Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos), John "Jojo" Hermann (Widespread Panic), Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars), Tony Furtado, and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band).
