OXFORD – Americana/roots-rock band Pesky J. Nixon will return to 6 On The Square in Oxford at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.
According to event organizers, the group has entertained audiences up and down the East Coast, drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy Southern bluegrass, and the wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes.
Organizers said compelling harmonies and stories help to unify Pesky J. Nixon’s disparate instrumentation, including zydeco-style accordion, mandolin, tribal percussion, and a variety of string instrumentation. Organizers added with rich harmonies and musical versatility, the band brings infectious energy and brotherly banter to every stage.
The band's latest albums, "Red Ducks" Vol. 1 and 2, honor their roots in the folk scene with unique cover songs from the bands’ friends and musical icons. Their debut CD, 2010’s “Monkey Business & Mislaid Hopes,” won praise from reviewers and musical peers alike.
Pesky J. Nixon has performed as Most Wanted Emerging Artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival as well as formal showcase artists at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance convention.
