Boxcar Bandits began when Texas Rex enlisted the help of some local musicians and began performing under the moniker in February 2006 in their town of Denton, TX. Equally at home at a beer joint or concert hall, the Bandits meld old-time, bluegrass, western swing and country with the sounds of string band instruments to create the “North Texas Skunkgrass” sound. The Bandits first album, “Smells Like Grass” was self-released in 2008, and a live set, “Live at Dan’s Silver Leaf”, was released in 2011; now both are available on Break-a-Pick Records. They are currently at work in the studio for their third album, A Tribute to Doc Watson.
