The Plott Hounds
The Plott Hounds
Alt Country, Americana, Blues Rock, Blue Collar Hippie Music 😉 from Atlanta GA & Anoka MN

Alternative Country & Blues that hearkens the tones of 70's Southern Rock with a tidge of swampy haze to keep you guessing where the songs just might travel...

Coming together on the river, The Plott Hounds have created a stronghold throughout the Midwest capturing crowds with the blend of Southern Rock & Roll, hints of Funky Blues and paying homage to the Outlaw Country legends. The Plott Hounds played their first performance at The Terminal Bar in Northeast Minneapolis, MN on July 14th 2014 and have not looked back since. With songs like $7.29 and a Pair of Boots and Write Your Own Songs, The Plott Hounds take pride in expressing their passion for songwriting and it’s call to playing music found deep in the soul.

Burning the midnight oil playing shows that span throughout the Midwest, The Plott Hounds addictive energy has paved their way to join the stage with names that started off as heroes and inspirations.

“Two years ago we were opening for Charlie Daniels Band, while impending rain, distant thunder, and occasional power loss on stage were threatening our set and his.” Lead Guitarist, Jeff Powell remembers. “During the set a backstage tech told us Charlie was pulling out because of the threat of thunderstorms. We swapped out one of our last songs for Long Haired Country Boy, telling the crowd that if Charlie can't play, we will try to do it justice for them playing our extended version of the song. At the song's end, the crowd exploded in cheers, then chanting for Charlie. Before we could catch our breath, a member of Charlie's tour came out and we got the pleasure of announcing that THE SHOW MUST GO ON. His band put on a set I'll never forget, all in dry weather.” An intoxicating memory that fuels the band to this day.

Since inception, the band has released 3 studio albums - Living Free (2015) - Thirsty For Something (2016) and Lost Summer Day (2017) along with a double live album "Blue Collar Hippie Music" (2016). The latest album, Lost Summer Day, was recently recognized as one of the top 40 Americana albums released in 2017 from The Americana Music Show. Saving Country Music recently tabbed The Plott Hounds as one of the new bands rising with the torch in the world of Southern Rock n Roll.

The current line up helped solidify the songs and sounds that the band now calls home. Each coming from a history in music, some going back twenty years playing together, to create the nostalgic sounds on stage. The Plott Hounds Feature: Noah Alexander (Atlanta, GA) Lead Vocals & Guitar, Jeff Powell (Charles City, IA) Lead Guitar, Catfish Kirk - (Champlin, MN) Lead Guitar & Vocals, Uncle Jesse - (Big Lake, MN) Bass Guitar & Vocals and Tater on Drums (Vadnais Heights, MN). As one, the band is more than just strings and drums but a family; whether it's jam sessions on the boat or three am breakfast detours. As they look to the upcoming year, with new music and new stages ahead, fans can rely on The Plott Hounds to deliver a show filled with powerful lyrics and heaps of raw energy.
