Contemporary jazz-grass band MilkDrive features award-winning instrumentalists Brian Beken on fiddle and lead vocals, Noah Jeffries on guitar and harmony vocals, Dennis Ludiker on mandolin and harmony vocals, and Matt Mefford on double bass. Fueled by equal parts tradition and innovation, MilkDrive delivers a distinctive acoustic experience marked by sophisticated arrangements and fierce musicianship. The Austin-based band’s second studio album, WAVES, featuring Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) and Futureman (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) was released in June.

“Their new album, Waves, is as informed by pop songwriting and jazz breaks as it is by Bill Monroe, so don’t let the presence of all acoustic instruments and a hefty slice of banjo, guitar, fiddle, and mandolin-driven Americana fool you. While they’re not the first group to take bluegrass into chamber ensembles and jazz clubs, they are playing it the hardest, never losing sight of how much fun the music should be!” –Prescription Bluegrass
