About Pixie & The Partygrass Boys

Fusing the old with the new, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys bring a fresh, youthful edge to the bluegrass tradition. We've been playing together as a band since 2015 and have all been performing professionally for over a decade prior to that.

Drawing influences from funk, jazz, pop, and punk rock, our music appeals to both young and old. With over three hours of high-energy covers (ask for a list-- we've got a Spotify playlist available) to accompany four-plus hours of original compositions, Partygrass has been known to drive dance parties that roll 'til the chickens crow!

As a professional group of formally educated musicians, our musical versatility translates to one-stop shopping for couples— need a jazz trio for cocktail hour, or string accompaniment for the ceremony? Partygrass has got you covered.

Our band consists of:

  • Katia "Pixie" Racine - Vocals, Ukelele
  • Ben Weiss - Mandolin, Vocals
  • Andrew Nelson - Guitar, Vocals
  • Zach Downes - Bass
  • Amanda B. Grapes - Fiddle, Vocals

Want a bigger sound? We've got horns and percussion (including washboard!) on call.

Pixie and the Partygrass Boys played over twenty weddings across four states in 2017, as well as dozens of private and corporate events. Recent & upcoming engagements of note include a sold-out headline at The State Room, benefits for ACLU Utah and Planned Parenthood Utah, as well as performances at Winter Wondergrass Steamboat, High Sierra Music Festival in Northern California, and Campout for the Cause in Buena Vista, Colorado.

Curious about our music? Check us out on Spotify or iTunes-- we're currently finishing up a new EP (entitled "Utah Made") to be released early this summer. Our Facebook account has a full list of upcoming shows-- we average 8-10 public gigs in Northern Utah per month, so it's easy to catch us if you're in town.

"With tunes spanning the breadth of the American songbook as well as their own songs about wandering, whiskey, lies, and love both lost and gained they are sure to shake loose a storm of music as deep and satisfying as the fresh powder on one of Utah's mighty mountains."
