Electric Deep Fried Satellites

Excited to be teamed up with Mac Holmes again. Electric Deep Fried Satellites are an experimental rock and roll band rooted in Appalachian Mountain music. The band consists of Mac Holmes on Electric guitar and vocals, Brian Vastine on claw hammer banjo and vocals, Joey Clark on Acoustic and Electric guitar, Harmonica and vocals, my brother Chuck Houghton on Drums, Drew Williard on 5 string Electric Bass, and me on Keys, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and vocals. We play a blend of Classic Rock and Roll and Traditional Folk music blended with Country, Appalachian Mountain music, Blues, RandB and whatever other influences we can squeeze in there.
