Southbound Mule Bluegrass BandSouthbound Mule plays an non-eclectic mix of old favorites and new standards - everything from Bill Monroe (and earlier) to Vince Gill. They are known far and wide for their hard-driving style, high-energy vocals and tight harmonies. And don't let the tin-type fool you - they clean up good, too.

Southbound Mule - Oklahoma's favorite Bluegrass band - is heading into their summer schedule. There are still a few slots left open, so if you're wanting the Mule to energize yourevent, best be calling us now at 405-306-3062!

Get yer dibs in early to have us play! Want to see where we'll be? Check the calendar.

We have succumbed to the allure of the Dark Side, so 'like' us on our new Facebook page!

I've worked up a short highlights reel as a promo video for Southbound Mule. Take a look!

Here's a song from last year's Tallgrass Bluegrass Festival. Sound quality is kinda iffy, but you'll get the idea. We shared the billing with Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, The Farmhands, and Wood & Wire - we were in good company that day.


I love making the front page of the newspapers, this one from Wichita Falls. Verlon joined us for this one.Ya'll pray for Verlon. He's got some serious health problems right now.

I've put up about 20 videos from a festival in Shawnee a few years back. Here's a playlist below, or you can visit our YouTube channel to all of them HERE >>>

Stay tuned!

I've just put up a whole bunch of videos from the GOBMS Gospel show this summer. Take a look at our Youtube channel, and ignore the ones where I set stuff on fire. Unless you're into that.
