Choctaw Wildfire

Often sounding like a band possessed, Charlie Pierce and Choctaw Wildfire is an intense, driving honky-tonk trio that consists of piano, upright bass, and drums. During a performance, they will rattle you to the core with a heartbreaking ballad and then unleash a New Orleans inspired boogie that leaves the listener longing for the days when juke joints ruled the American landscape. Their music is somehow familiar, yet can leave you feeling like an outsider who has just witnessed something very real, painfully beautiful, and ultimately redeeming. Regardless of how their music grabs you, a performance by Charlie Pierce and Choctaw Wildfire might be the most genuine thing you’ve heard in a very long time.
