Appalachian Bluegrass Shoppe presents the band, Mixed Business, as part of our “Just Stopping By” Series of in-store performances.
In this segment recorded on November12, 2015, the Annapolis-based Mixed Business performs four of the tracks off of their self-titled album, and one fun Beatles cover to the delight of shoppers and students who happened to be in the store that evening.
About The Band
Based in Baltimore and formed in 2007, Mixed Business uses a mind-blowing combination of acoustic and electric instruments – from guitars to the upright bass, from piano to drums and percussion, from the mandolin to the banjo, and steel drums to the accordion — the band produces an ever changing musical experience, one that has allowed Mixed Business one of the busiest local music schedules around. Over 50 venues in the Balt. / Annap. / Wash D.C. area and beyond since 2007.
Blending folk, country & bluegrass with electric rock and blues – the band has created a catalogue of original music that refuses to fall into any one genre, and by using more-than-a-handful of vintage and modern instruments, MB has perfected a deep, smokey sound that most bands don’t even attempt these days.
Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Tom Waits, and Muddy Waters Mixed Business throws the kitchen sink at a crowd — delivering skilled playing and tight vocal harmonies.
Members of Mixed Business of have more-or-less grown up in Appalachian Bluegrass Shoppe and are loyal patrons to this day.
