Chicken Wire Empire
Born from the Wisconsin jamband scene, Chicken Wire Empire began as a traditional bluegrass band. The band honed its traditional sound in 2014 with its debut album Chicken Wire Empire. With half of the group rooted in bluegrass and the other half steeped in jamband music, a change occurred when Chicken Wire Empire performed an Old & In The Way tribute show. A new sound was found in Milwaukee, and Chicken Wire Empire joined the roster of high-energy jamgrass happening across the nation.
While Chicken Wire Empire is deeply embedded in the Milwaukee and Wisconsin music scene, the band has toured Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, enamoring audiences with their unique contemporary Bluegrass sound.
