Electronic Press Kit for The Wrecklunds
The Wrecklunds are a 5-piece bluegrass and Americana-rock band based in Evergreen, Colorado. Over the last four years, the band has established itself as a force to be reckoned with along the Front Range.
The Wrecklunds feature renown singer Bryan Eklund (Rapture Valley, Bobber Johnson, Woodfire), fiddle player Kyle O’Brien (Henhouse Prowlers, Earl Brothers), mandolin player Mark Swaim (Home, Soul Tyme), banjo player Brandt Miller (Restless Leg String Band, Steepland String Band), and doghouse bass player Eric Drobny (40 Gallon Still, Some Train Yard).
Within the last year the Wrecklunds have released their debut album ‘Moon Over Broadway’, produced by Vince Herman (of Leftover Salmon) and performed on the Rockygrass main stage as finalists in the Planet Bluegrass band competition as well as many other memorable shows for their supportive fans.
With tight vocal-harmonies, masterful instrumentation and songcraft, and a passion for live performance, the Wrecklunds are a must-see act for Colorado music fans before their music takes them across the country and around the world.
