The music lineup for Oxblood Masquerade features a wide variety of local acts including the comedic honky-tonk band The Possum Posse, one-man funk band Henry + The Invisibles, blues rock duo The Ghost Wolves, the booty-shaking party band SIP SIP, boot-stomping country blues band Mother Merey and the Black Dirt, funky bluegrass duo Fog & Bone and more. See what's in store:

The Possum Posse

The Possum Posse is the world's premier sardonic honky-tonk bluegrass band. Based in Austin, TX, they win over audiences by playing memorable originals as well as mashed-up versions of urban cult-classics and girlie-pop favorites. They are perhaps best known for their wildly popular viral video series, “Guy On A Buffalo,” which has been featured on NPR's All Things Considered,, G4's Attack of the Show, and other national media. The Possum Posse has also made a name for themselves as one of the most entertaining, engaging, and unique acts around.


Henry + The Invisibles

Henry + The Invisibles is an amazing one-man funk band best known for electrifying audiences with high energy dance music and explosive live performances. Multi-instrumentalist Henry Roland records live loops using his vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, percussion and other random objects such as coffee cans, chairs and water jugs to create music that sounds like it is being performed by a 5-piece funk outfit. To be more specific, Henry’s music sounds like Sly The Family Stone meets James Brown meets Jimi Hendrix meets Prince – yet has a unique and original sound that is definitively Henry + The Invisibles. He has opened for many musical greats including Maceo Parker, Ozomatli, Medeski, Martin & Wood, The Wailers and many more.


The Ghost Wolves

This Austin-based duo first met at the Oxblood Masquerade years ago. They blend gritty, backwoods blues rock that conjures up '60s garage ghosts and demons from the Delta. The band consists of singer/guitarist Carley Wolf and drummer/singer Jonathan Wolf. The duo tours relentlessly, and is known for their energetic live show and infectious on-stage chemistry. Punk sensibility, blues style, crashing drums, scattershot harmonies and moments of folk simplicity define The Ghost Wolves sound.
