The Short Straw Pickers

If ever there was a band to come out of the gate swinging, it is the The Short Straw Pickers. Whereas most bands have their debut in a bar or at a party with 15-20 of their frieinds, the Pickers had their unforgettable first performance at The 200+seat concert hall at Lynn University to a packed house. The reason for this is the musicians in this band have made names for themselves in the South Florida music scene in other successful bands.

Jack has fronted the very popular local band "Cypress" for the Past 3 years, developing a loyal following and a solid reputation as a gifted songwriter. For several years, Corey has been sharing leadership roles in South Florida's premiere Dead tribute band "Crazy Fingers." Always in high demand, Carl has played with numerous projects and is highly regarded in South Florida as one of the best fiddle players to ever grace the area. When these guys got together with the outstanding young Jeff on Bass, and Joel on Drums (Both on scholarship at Lynn University) The magic was obvious. Micah filled out the final aspect of the sound on Dobro and Banjo, giving the pickers a sound that is at once familiar, yet unique and original. Before they ever hit the stage, the buzz was out. When they did make that first appearance, it was quickly evident to everyone in that concert hall that this is the beginning of something very special. Corey, Carl, and Jack have been playing together for years and this band is ready to go anywhere. SSP is hitting the road at the end of the summer to start spreading the music that they believe in. In fact, these guys believe they can play this music for as long as they live.

They come to every show in shirt and tie, with professional attitudes, and great respect for the craft, for fellow musicians, and with a thirst for making music for as many people as they can get in front of.
