Oakhurst is a Denver-based international act with deep Appalachian roots and highly original songs that fuse traditional bluegrass with indie-rock and a citybilly attitude. The band's sound is more rustic and rocking, and less jazzy and jammed, than the typical hybrid bluegrass found in the Rocky Mountain Region. Oakhurst is one of the hardest working bands in America, performing over 200 shows per year. So far, Oakhurst has hit 20 states and 5 European countries and has already received invitations for two European tours and several major festivals in 2007. Even though their tour schedule is incessant, the band never stops playing. On off days the boys of Oakhurst take to the streets, or festival grounds deploying their Rocky Mountain Guerrilla Grass style, making some new friends, promoting shows and moving a few CDs. They have even been known to trade after hours acoustic shows for places to stay. Along the way the band has entertained crowds as large as 5,500, played on the Xingolati Groove Cruise, Wakarusa, both 2006 Hookahvilles, Barenaked Ladies Ships and Dip Cruise and moved over 7,500 CDs. Over the course of their career Oakhurst has shared stages with very diverse national talent such as Nickel Creek, The Flaming Lips, Barenaked Ladies, Yard Dogs Roadshow, Bela Fleck, The Ditty Bops, The Radiators, Junior Brown, The Hackensaw Boys, Ekoostik Hookah, & Guster. Oakhurst has also shared the stage with Colorado legends and emerging talent as well. The list includes Yonder Mountain String Band, Devotchka, Rose Hill Drive, the Motet, Pete Wernick and Vince Herman. 2007 finds Oakhurst continuing to tour in the United Stated and Europe, as well as working on their fourth album. In addition to regularly scheduled gigs, they will be bringing their brand of "Rocky Mountain Guerrilla Grass" to festival campgrounds all over the United States. In the words of Hookahville promoter Steve Trickle, "The next time you are sitting around your campfire and a limo golf cart rolls up, get ready to get down".
