Close your eyes at a Deadwood Revival show and you'd swear there are more than two people onstage, but Kim Trenerry and Jason Mogi produce an amazingly full sound that has fueled many a hootenanny up and down the West coast. "They're on the leading edge of the resurgence and revitalized interest in old-time music" (Joe Ross-Bluegrass Now).
Kim's rock solid rhythm guitar and bass with Jason's imaginative, clean claw-hammer or slide banjo and guitar (ok, not all at once) along with his home-made 'stomp board' creates high energy, feel-good music "embossed with old-time, eclectic folk, blues and even classic country flavors". Likewise, the pair can bring it down to a single instrument and still fill the room with undeniable energy.
Their "magnificent vocal blend anchored by Kim's powerful voice and complemented by the softer yet perfect pitch of Jason" (Washington Bluegrass Association) adds emotional depth to every song they sing together... like "peaches and whiskey". Both talented songwriters, their original tunes have been described as "old-timey with smokin' hooks". Whether a rockin' hoe down or a tasty ballad, their songs are uplifting, sometimes poignant, and often sound like they could have been written a hundred years ago.
Since their debut CD in 2005 and a second CD in 2006, both receiving radio airplay and excellent reviews, this Port Angeles, WA based duo continues to win over audiences with their superb musicianship, charisma, and infectious high spirits. Performer Magazine said of Deadwood Revival..."They bring spry sharp harmonies and an effortlessly cheerful energy to every song"
