Midnight River Choir

Midnight River Choir

 

This Texas quartet (they’re really from New Braunfels, but people just say Austin) got their name from an incident on the first night they met. While floating together down the Guadalupe River, they bonded by harmonizing and singing songs through the night. The next day, folks were talking about the “midnight river choir” mysteriously heard in the Texas twilight, and a band was born. Since then, Eric Middleton (lead vocals, guitar), Justin Nelson (lead guitar), Jeromy Yager (bassist) and Mitchell Pyeatt (drummer) have taken the Americana, Texas groove and jam band scenes by storm, scoring hits on Texas-based charts and playing all over the Lone Star State. Now on the move to reach the rest of America, they’ve spent time in July playing Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin, and, luckily for us, ending up with a three-day run in small towns surrounding Springfield before heading back for more of Texas. Groovy guys with a groove going that gets the heart beating, the feet moving and the mind racing; these fellas got it going on.
