MISSISSIPPI BENDS are one of the most refreshing bands to come along in a while. An americana group from Hamilton. Swampy gritty southern rock with dark country influences drives the sound. They sold out the show last time… Reservations Recommended.

Mississippi Bends- featuring Mary Simon (vocals, acoustic guitar), Andrew Aldridge (electric guitar, vocals), Carrie Ashworth (bass guitar) and Robin Pirson (drums, percussion) are an Alt Americana band with many derivative influences which coalesce in a dark, swampy organic brew which will buckle your knees faster than a triple whiskey sour.It began on Simon’s birthday when she decided to book a show and invite her favourite musicians to play. Her history with each musician however, could not foretell the chemistry that shook the first chords played as a collective.

The equation of Robin Pirson’s vintage 1930’s drum kit  rumbling underneath Carrie Ashworth’s sub bass sonic boom balanced to create an elegant framework for the muti grit textures of Andrew Aldridge’s (aka “AA”or Double A) Gretsch guitar and the dark country croons of Mary Simon’s voice. The future was made abundantly clear.
