This band of outlaws first became known for their mischief and shenanigans. While rarely seen now, the band is known to live their days making music in the secluded and illusive mountains of Saskatchewan, getting together occasionally to perform at underground speak-easy’s such as The Bassment. The Mountain Ridge Band features “Fast Fingers Picker Padalec” on banjo, and his sidekicks, “Mad Dog Doc Carter” on guitar & vocals, “Pick Pocket Frenchie” on fiddle & vocals, “The Swindlin’ Prezident” on bass, “Cheatin’ Lady K” on Keys, horns, & vocals, and “Wild Man Burnie” on Drums. They are often joined by “The Jazz Bandits” horn section.
And, should anyone ask, they were never seen here!
