Hailing from Northwest Arkansas, Mudhawk has been suprising audiences with their raw, fresh approach to blues, rock and roll, and country. With a healthy mix of originals and covers, Mudhawk pays tribute to their heroes and influences, including Freddy King, Waylon Jennings, Willie Dixon, Levon Helm, and Dr. John, to name a few.
The Mudhawk are a versatile band, able to play any size venue to audiences of all types. As individuals, each member brings a unique style to the table. Richard Burnett is well-schooled in both acoustic and electric guitar, as well as harmonica. His background includes membership in legendary Arkansas bands such as Pope County Bootleggers, Honeyshine, and The Shackrats. Paul Burnham (Shindig Shop) is a regional hero to anyone that has had the pleasure to hear his versatile approach to piano. Jason Young and Chuck Haight round out the rhythm section with tight, booming bass and drums, with an irresistible groove that causes everyone in the venue to get up and dance.
Mudhawk are available for all types of events, in any sort of venue. We can provide our own PA system, and have adequate amplification for most room sizes big and small, indoor or outdoor, and can cater to all types of audiences with their extensive repertoire.
