For the Blue Mule Band the message is clear; to bring the unique sound of mulegrass to audiences everywhere. While Webster might not be able to define MuleGrass, The Blue Mule Band knows exactly what it is: an eclectic mix of traditional bluegrass and upbeat folk music played amid moments of humor and a lot of fun. Awash in harmonies and unique style, the sound of The Blue Mule Band sets the group apart from other bluegrass bands. Born out of jam sessions at Fosters Irish Pub in Ellicottville New York, the Cattaraugus County based band was officially formed in December 2003. In 2004, The Blue Mule Band and 36 fans, took their music for a weeklong pub tour of Ireland. Highlights of the trip was a spot on the Cormac McConnell Show. Members were interviewed and played three songs live on National Radio. The genuine interaction between the members and the audience has become a trademark and keeps folks coming back. Comittment to continuing The Blue Mule Band's unique sound and ex-panding original music continually drive the group in new directions.Contact at:@thebluemuleband@gmail.com or visit their web site @www.thebluemuleband.com
