Overview

Futurebirds are known for their high energy shows and country rock infused sound. Their music incorporates reverb-soaked four-part harmonies supported by pedal steel guitar, rhythmic percussion, banjo, mandolin, and acoustic and electric guitars with heavy feedback, and has been described as 'psychedelic country'.[2][3][4]

The band has often shared the stage with Widespread Panic, Drive-By Truckers, Dead Confederate,[5] The Whigs, Blitzen Trapper and Jonny Corndawg.

During summer 2011 the group toured with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals on the Bonnaroo Buzz Tour and performed twice during the Bonnaroo festival.[6][7]
