Partygrass isn't exactly bluegrass, or newgrass, or pop, or punk, or rock and roll. They fall somewhere in between it all, and that’s exactly how they like it. Drawing influence from the bluegrass roots of Appalachia and transporting it straight to the western edge of the Rockies, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys create a uniquely American sound. Inspired by landscapes from coast to coast, the group combines classical training with jazz, Broadway, pop-punk, and an unabashed love for having a damn good time.
Pixie and the Partygrass Boys have played for national audiences at festivals including High Sierra Music Festival, WinterWonderGrass, and ARISE, and have shared the stage with names like Grace Potter, Billy Strings, The Lil Smokies, and The Jon Stickly Trio.
Led by vocalist Katia "Pixie" Racine, this group of lifelong musicians -- Amanda B. Grapes (fiddle, vocals) Ben Weiss (mandolin, vocals), Andrew Nelson (guitar, vocals), and Zach Downes (bass)-- are known for their infectious energy and ability to get any room wiggling.
