Pixie and The Partygrass Boys

A rowdy band of ski bums and hippies first brought together by a common love of snow, fun, and bluegrass in the shadows of Utah's Wasatch Mountains, Pixie and The Partygrass Boys have been spreading the gospel of whiskey and chickens since 2015. The infectious energy and enthusiasm of their live shows quickly garnered them a loyal following in the Intermountain West.

Led by vocalist Katia "Pixie" Racine, this group of lifelong musicians -- Ben Weiss (mandolin, vocals), Andrew Nelson (guitar, vocals), Zach Downes (bass), and Amanda Grapes (fiddle, vocals)-- together blend elements of pop, punk, jazz, and funk with classic bluegrass to create their unique style, dubbed "Partygrass".
