About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Muleskinner Band has been providing its listeners with a unique blend of quality bluegrass, gospel, and traditional country music for 25 years. Tight harmony, upbeat humor, and excellent musicianship make a Muleskinner performance perfect for a wide range of audiences. The Muleskinner Band is able to accommodate both stage and acoustic "strolling" venues. The Muleskinner Band has performed on stages and grounds for a variety of festive occasions including: concerts, festivals, dedications, birthdays, retirements, weddings, receptions, commemorative events, church functions, and church services. This group's track record includes appearances on The Nashville Network, the Ohio State Fair, Country Concert at Hickory Hills Lakes, The Prairie Peddlar Festival, Backwoods Festival, Americana Festival, Wheeling, WVA Jamboree radio show, Cain Park, Clark State Performing Arts Center, Fraze Pavilion, Ashland Arts Council, Springfield Arts Council, and Worthington Arts Council, to name a few. They have performed with Diamond Rio, Collin Raye, Jeff Carson,Margo Smith, The Kentucky Headhunters, Terry Clark, Trick Pony, Lost & Found, The Reno Brothers, Jim & Jesse, Cletus T. Judd, The Isaacs, and The Lewis Family, to name a few. The Muleskinner Band participates in the Ohio Arts' Council fee-support program and is a member of the Ohio Arts Presenters' Network. Bill, Jim, Ed, and Gary have come together as The Muleskinner Band, bringing their individual musical backgrounds, experiences, and influences with them. An evening with the Muleskinners will certainly lead one to the conclusion that none are willing to abandon their musical heritages. Hence, the musical offerings on a given evening will span Big Mon to Buck, Patsy to Merle, Gospel to the Drifters, Doobie Brothers to Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Great vocal harmony is a centerpiece of every Muleskinner rendering, as is solid instrumental backing and soloing. An evening with the Muleskinners will certainly include frequent and prolific storytelling, humor, and good-hearted dialogue with the audience. We hope that this encourages you to "come give The Muleskinner Band a listen."

CelebrationReviewed on October 15, 2023From Centerburg, OH

This is the second year that the Muleskinner Band has played our fall party and we have really enjoyed them both times. Everyone who has come asks about them. Mr. Purks is a very good communicator, they are flexible, and oh so talented! Highly recommend!!

The Muleskinner Band:

Thanks for a wonderful experience. Always great working with you.
