Friday, August 8, 2014Mullet River Boys

Hi, we're the Mullet River Boys! We're based in Minnesota, and perform a tasteful blend of family-friendly vaudeville and bluegrass-influenced jug band music.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune once called us, "one of the most entertaining acoustic groups in the Midwest" and oddball crooner Tiny Tim hailed our lead singer Jack Norton as, "the greatest entertainer I have ever seen!"

We've been performing together for nearly ten years and are excited to be back in the Midwest after an extended stint in Nashville.

We'll be performing at Backus Community Center on Friday, August 8 at 7:00 pm - buy your tickets today! Available at Backus, City Drug and Betty's in Fort Frances.
