Pesky J. Nixon
Bombastic yet brilliant, these boys from New England exude a genuine musical authenticity and mirth on stages up and down the East Coast. Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. Compelling harmonies and narratives rein in disparate instrumentation including- zydeco style accordion, virtuosic mandolin, a variety of tribal percussion, and a myriad of string instrumentation.
PJN brings a unique brand of infectious energy and stage banter to every stage they grace. These guys are great - whether they are playing their own original music or covering songs from their local friends or musical icons.
"They raise the roof. Like Moxy Fruvous and Great Big Sea they are a band that makes me feel good no matter what. They radiate positive vibes. Their new songs are moving in a new direction; they are growing as artists as we watch." - Gordon Nash, Wise Madness (Nov 16, 2011)
Kerrville New Folk Winner RJ Cowdery says of the band "Sweet Jesus! You guys can play on. Want to hear me some more PJN!"
