Pickles produced a Hurricane benefit album in Fall 2005 entitled, "M.A.D.E.- Musicians Assisting Disaster Efforts" for the Conscious Alliance, a non-profit that feeds America's hungry. Featured on the CD are Umphreys McGee, the GOURDS, SPLIT LIP RAYFIELD and many more.
Pickles promote music education through their "KinderMusic" workshops- teaching kids and adults how to make homemade instruments from recyclable materials.
The Deep Fried Pickles are a delectable musical treat. They pride themselves on making jug-a-billy music that would make Hee-Haw's Grandpa Jones shake, rattle and roll over in his grave. Founded in '00 as a jug band, 'DFPP' now mixes other American roots forms into the breading batter as well. Bluegrass, Folk, Rockabilly, Blues and Honky-Tonk tunes pepper their set lists.
The musical phenomenon's performances include hillbilly-style punk-rock covers and rollicking original tunes.
Recent performance venues include TELLURIDE BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL in Colorado and SUNSHINE DAYDREAMS GARCIA B-DAY BASH in West Virginia, as well as venues across North America.
The Pickles have shared the bill with Wilco, Gov't Mule, Umphrey's McGee, BELA FLECK, String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, George Clinton, Derek Trucks Band and ANI DE FRANCO, among many others.
'SPIN' music magazine features an interview with the Pickles in the October 2004 issue, in the 'Jamband Food Pyramid' article.
'Jamcam Chronicles- In the Spotlight' DVD features an interview and Garcia Bash performance.
What sets the Pickles apart as a band is the fact that they can play kids shows, adult shows and then host a "KinderMusic " kids instrument building workshop all in the same day. Their flexibility and devotion to music education have made them a popular act to book for festival promoters and talent buyers.
The band was featured in an episode of 'Postcards From Buster', a spin-off of "Arthur" on PBS Kids, which has millions of viewers worldwide. The show aired on October 11th. The episode was entitled, 'Meet Me at the Fair'. (#101) Check your local listings for re-broadcast airtimes.
