The HogSlop String BandNashville, TN -- A multi-award-winning old-time band, The HogSlop String Band has signed with Moonstruck Management for management and booking. Headed by Josh Trivett, Moonstruck has an impressive client roster that includes notable and award-winning acts such as: Dr. Ralph Stanley, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Lonesome River Band, The Roys, Adkins & Loudermilk and former clients like Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Bobby Osborne and more. The Moonstruck team is focused on a deep appreciation for Bluegrass, folk and old-time string music.

The HogSlop String Band is a Nashville based old time string band comprised of six energetic young musicians hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, California and North Carolina. Featuring Casy Meikle and Kevin Martin on fiddles, Graham Sherrill on banjo, Gabe Kelley on guitar, Daniel Allen Frazier Jr. on washboard and Casey McBride on the washtub bass, these boys surely raise a ruckus as they tip a hat to some great, historic sounds.

With their intentionally unkempt appearance and undeniable charm, the gifted fellas of HogSlop follow in the footsteps of such country music luminaries as Uncle Dave Macon and Gid Tanner. Their high energy, fast-pickin’ performances are appreciated by both young and old alike.

"I am so excited about adding The HogSlop String band to the Moonstruck family of artists,” Trivett says. “I have such a love for the old-time string band style of music. When I first saw HogSlop perform, I was blown away at the authenticity of the music they presented mixed with the energy and uniqueness in which they conduct and deliver their show. I am excited about the immediate impact these guys are going to have on the industry."

Formed as a pickup square dance band in the summer of 2009, The HogSlop String Band has since become one of the most sought after old time string bands playing today. Known for their outrageous facial hair and a rollicking repertoire heavily based on Georgia and Middle Tennessee fiddle tunes, these boys have provided entertainment for fashion shows, political conventions and whiskey distilleries as well as countless weddings, festivals and other soirees.

Moonstruck Management focuses on country and bluegrass music and incorporates artist development, management, growth and booking into one controlled business. Josh Trivett brings to the music industry a unique sensibility with a background that includes 13 years in professional golf as a tour player, National Spokesperson and Senior Vice President of Tour Operations at two successful golf club companies. After his departure from the golf industry, Trivett stepped into the music business by managing and increasing the worldwide visibility of bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.
