Mountain Brew (and Friends)

Thanks for visiting! These pages will provide information on the various bands that Andy and Sara Burr perform in. If you arrived here in search of a particular band, just click on the menu link for that band. Otherwise, feel free to explore, and contact us with any questions. Here’s an overview….

Andy plays guitar and harmonica and sings; Sara plays mandolin and adds to the vocals. We normally use pre-recorded bass and drum ‘tracks’ that give us the freedom to play melodies while helping keep volume (and budget) under control.

Mountain Brew (duo/trio) specializes in Americana (old-timey/bluegrass/country/folk/blues/Cajun), or Irish music. We play a lot of picnics, barbecues, reunions, and barn dances.

Retro Ramblers (duo/trio) plays ‘oldies’ 1950s-’80s pop, light rock, and country standards or Christmas music. It’s a nice variety of music for dancing or listening.

The Porchdogs (duo,trio, full band) has been playing spicy Louisiana Cajun and zydeco and New Orleans pop music since 1992. Good for themes like Low Country Boil, Swamp Party, Mardi Gras, etc.

Pickin’ & Grinnin’ is our new show: Two farmhands who are outstanding in their field present a mix of jokes, music, and audience participation that can be customized to promote any agri-business sponsor. Can be a stage act or battery-powered grounds act.
