The Dodge Brothers (one of whom is film critic Mark Kermode) indulge their unhealthy obsessions with booze, transport, homicide and silent cinema in a foot-stomping hybrid of blues, rockabilly, jug-band and skiffle!

The Dodge Brothers are renowned for playing the hell out of classic Americana. Described as "wonderful stuff" by Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris, they play an exuberant hybrid of country blues, rockabilly, jugband and skiffle. Firmly rooted in these traditions The Dodge Brothers bring to them a freshness that has feet stomping and hands clapping from California to Cropredy, from the Mississippi to the New Forest. Their songs feature vocal virtuosity and heartfelt harmonies underpinned by joyous guitars, thumping double bass and rattlin' snare and washboard.

The Dodge Brothers features Mike Hammond (lead guitar, lead vocals, banjo), Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica, vocals), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Alex Hammond (washboard, snare drum, percussion). Their music has an authentically American tang lead guitarist/vocalist Mike Hammond was raised in Alabama and his youthful musical travels took him all over the southern and western USA but with a strong British perspective from BBC Culture Show presenter and film critic Mark Kermode.

Wonderful stuff! It sounds fabulous, it really does! (Bob Harris BBC Radio 2)

It's skiffle, it's rock n roll, it's country, it's blues - hell it's the complete endearing sound of a long distance love affair with all things Americana! (R2 Magazine)

These guys play with dust in their Levis and the road their hearts!
