North Country Bandits
North Country Bandits THE NORTH COUNTRY BANDITS are a six piece band comprised of members from DOUG OTTO AND THE GETAWAYS, THE FEELIN' BAND, STONE SOUP, THE HIGH 48's, and THE JASON DIXON LINE. In the summer of 2007 we all got together to jam at Famous Daves, with MATT PUDAS, (WHITE IRON BAND) as his backing band under the name MATT PUDAS & THE NORTH COUNTRY BANDITS. We had such a great time playing music together that we decided to make a band out of it. Our musical influences are all over the board ranging from Blues and Bluegrass to New Orleans Funk and Old School Country. DOUG OTTO, NICK MROZINSKI, and DREW DRUCKREY all bring a different style and sound when they sing, but also blend very well when singing together. SHANE AKERS plays Dobro and Lap Steel, RICH CASEY supplies the low end (Bass) while CHRIS GRAY drives the bus (Drums).
