The White Iron Band is a high-energy renegade American roots band specializing in foot-stompin, forget-what-troubles-ya music. With energy to blow your face off and enough soul to well your eyes, the band is best taken live with friends and strangers. White
Iron shows combine lyrical accessibility and explosive musicianship to produce a rich experience for the head, heart, and legs.
Originally formed in Ely, MN, the heart of Minnesota’s northern Iron Range, by frontman Matt Pudas, guitarist Sammy Weyandt and keyboardist Eddie Juntunen, the White Iron Band embodies the triumphs and struggles of the everyday man. Their songs carry a tinge of the old cowboy legends canonized by the Highwaymen, with stories ranging from tales of love, pain, jail, work and whiskey. Now based in Minneapolis, the group has established a passionate and equally as rowdy fan-base throughout the Midwest and has traveled further to spread their unique mix of blues, country and Americana roots music.
After more than 10 years together the band has played over a thousand shows and released four full-length, original albums. After the success of their latest independent release Devil’s Sweet Revenge (2008), the group has gone back to the studio with renewed vigor to record a fifth album. Production is already underway so expect the album to be released sometime in 2010. With a long road behind them, the White Iron Band has shown they are worth the wait and is on the brink of breaking into the national music scene.
The White Iron Band has supported and shared the stage with such acts as David Allen Coe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, North Mississippi Allstars, Shooter Jennings, and many more.
Madison’s own Sandrose Band, formerly the well-known Elf Lettuce will set the tone for an evening of tear-the -roof off fun when they open for the White Iron Band with their own well-loved blend of folksy rock ‘n’ blues hootenanny jam psychedelic love-stomp music. You can’t help but get swept up in their good vibin’ vocals and tasty chops.
Sandrose’s plentiful feel-good vibrations that prove the adage “You gotta get down to get up.”
Usher in the cool autumn weather, welcome the students back to town!
