The 40 Acre Mule is Third Coast Rock & Roll…blending roots rock, traditional rhythm and blues, rockabilly and soul into a sound all their own. With nods to Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Freddie King, the 5-piece outfit formed in Dallas, TX in 2015. Since then, they’ve played with J.D. McPherson, Reverend Horton Heat, Charley Crockett, The James Hunter Six, Rosie Flores, Dale Watson and Wayne Hancock just to name a few.
In 2019, the band released their critically acclaimed debut album, Goodnight & Good Luck, on State Fair Records making several “Best Of” lists that year. Rolling Stone said, “the band’s revivalist boogie-woogie points to a healthy appreciation for 20th century rock & rollers”. Central Track called their performances, “…a powerhouse of R&B revival, with touches of golden era rock, boogie and subtle hints of country mixed in.”
Recently, The 40 Acre Mule have been hard at work in the studio, perfecting their sophomore album due out in February of 2021. Meanwhile, they’ll be hitting the road with Old 97s, The Delta Bombers and more soon!
