Meet the Bo’Hog Brothers: Winners of the 2014 Western PA Blues Society competition. Colonel Gregg Krupa on guitar and vocals, “Barnyard Binsy” Binsberger on keyboards, “Chicken Coop” Crano on drums, and “Trash Can” Raffetto on bass. Born in the back hills of Pennsylvania, their music is electric, eclectic and hard to define. From roots rock ‘n’ roll to rock-a-billy, with a little country and Texas swing mixed in, the Bo’hog Brothers play with an intensity that can’t be beat. Their show consists of not only incredible musicianship, but the energy and comedy to keep the crowd dancing and laughing. Never ones to take themselves too seriously, the boys are a joy to watch and interact with. You can catch their act all around the Pittsburgh area.
A very dynamic, high energy, rock band playing classic and modern alternative rock. From songs you’ve heard for years, to the deep tracks you wont hear on the radio. Always adding new tunes and writing a few as well. Look for new original music coming soon!
