If ever there was a band to come out of the gate swinging, it is the Short Straw Pickers. Whereas most bands have their debut in a bar or at a party with 15-20 of their friends, the Pickers had their unforgettable first performance at the 200+ seat concert hall at Lynn University to a packed house. Jack has fronted the very popular local band Cypress for the past 3 years, developing a loyal following and a solid reputation as a gifted songwriter; Corey shares leadership roles in South Florida’s premiere Dead tribute band Crazy Fingers; Carl has played with numerous projects and is highly regarded in South Florida as one of the best fiddle players to grace the area. When these guys got together, backed by the solid young rhythm section of Jeff on bass and Joel on drums (both on scholarship at Lynn University), the magic was obvious. Micah filled out the final aspect of the sound on Dobro and Banjo, giving the pickers a sound that is at once familiar, yet unique and original. They come to every show in shirt and tie, with professional attitudes, and great respect for the craft, for fellow musicians, and with a thirst for making music for as many people as they can get in front of.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
