Boondocks is a five-piece band delivering country-blues, Americana, rock, electro-grass, Western Swing, and roots music that?s as comfortable as an old rocking chair, yet authentically their own.
Songwriters Margo Valiante and Aaron Davis contribute homegrown songs that are carving a contemporary perspective on American roots music. The chemistry of band members from very diverse backgrounds is a testament to the spirit of the music.
Boondocks brings a dynamic sound to the stage, capturing tight vocal harmony and intricate instrumentation that drifts from slow and soulful to rollicking and rowdy. Occasionally, the band performs "unplugged," old-time style around one microphone. The band digs into a plethora of their favorite traditional and contemporary tunes as well, from Gram Parsons and Wilco, to Ryan Adams, Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Susan Tedeski, Bob Willes, Gillian Welch, Hank Williams, and old-time bluesmen like Robert Johnson and Blind Willie Johnson. Much of the material also draws from traditional American roots music.
