Strumbucket is a five-piece "twang-funk" band from Jackson, Wyoming known for their colorful multi-genre live shows.  Drawing from a wide range of sounds, their original music weaves together funked bass grooves, banjo driven twang, latin beats, electro-psych synth lines, and classic rock guitar.    Listening to the group's offerings, one gets the sense that a good laugh is one piece of the puzzle that keeps the fun meter in check. 

Forming in 2018, the band has grown outside the local Jackson music scene, playing everything from rowdy bars, local venues, and outdoor concert series supporting acts along the way such as JoJo Herman, DJ Williams' Shot's Fired, Polyrhythmics, Diggin' Dirt, and The Ghost of Paul Revere.

The band consists of Peter Henderson (drums), Lavender Jones (bass, vocals), Grove Miller (keys), Pat Bottini (lead guitar), and Alex Blackwelder (banjo, lead vocals).  The band recently released their new album "Chest Vessel Beats" in February of 2024.

Strumbucket is influenced by the likes of The Meters, Little Feat, and one non-mainstream band for which they're known to cover frequently, Ween.
