Joe's Truck Stop
Joe's Truck Stop
Conceived at a greasy spoon, Joe's Truck Stop is here to replace the pills in that there jar.
Please, put those away.
You can usually find them ripping apart Old Time Appalachian fiddle tunes, paying tribute to their country heroes, and dishing out original songs to the dancing feet in the crowd.
Their unique sound is characterized by traditional vocal harmonies, Bluegrass drive, wild fiddling, hot guitar picking, doghouse slapping, and the Honky Tonk and Swing sounds of old...

More about the band: Members of the band are award winning instrumentalists from Bluegrass and Old Time Contests around the country, and the band itself has placed twice in the largest Old Time band contest at the Galax Old Fiddlers' Convention. In our progression from being solely an Appalachian Old Time stringband to an acoustic and electric Country and Blues band, we have played numerous festivals and venues from the Whispering Beard Folk Festival, to the Kennedy Center, to the many stages we've frequented in Boston/New England becoming regulars in the scene. We've shared bills with: JP Harris & the Tough Choices, the Sweetback Sisters, Rachel Brooke, the Ten Foot Polecats, King (Sasquatch) Sickabilly & the Howlin' Moon Boys, Jake & the Burtones and many other acts. We've also appeared on television and radio, including several Boston stations and Rockabilly Worldwide's 24-hr. Rockin' Therapy Radio.

Joe Macheret, the bandleader, has also lent his instrumental skills to folks like Wayne Hancock, the Tillers, Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours, the Goddamn Gallows, and many other well known musicians and bands.
