About The Hasslers

Nearing a decade since their formation, The Hasslers have worn a lot of hats and intend to keep rocking all of them.  Formed in Missoula, MT in 2012 by songwriter and lead singer Matt Hassler, these roots-rocking musicians have filled festivals, headlining gigs, and parties all across their great state and beyond.  With a new stomping ground in Seattle, WA, their intricate lyrics paired with muscular guitar, weeping pedal steel, air-tight harmonies, and honest live energy have found a new audience far beyond their humble beginnings.

The Hasslers recently headlined Northwest Folklife Festival, Bite of Seattle, Red Ants Pants, Seattle’s Great Pumpkin Beerfest, and played Monterey Cowboy Festival, Paul Allen’s Upstream Music Festival, and great clubs all across their most recent 18 city tour of the Northwest.  2019 sees these Montana natives embarking on two mini tours in anticipation of a senior EP bound to recreate the nostalgia of their early folk, bluegrass, and alt-country stylings, while reinventing themselves with newfound jazz harmonies, road worn storytelling, and a lot of big city blues.

While The Hasslers discography demands a replay for its poetic, close-to-home, yet all encompassing lyrics, their live shows give them the reputation they deserve—as the best guitar ripping, organ shredding, vocal screaming, genre bending, party band you’ve ever had the pleasure to shotgun a beer with before, after, and during their set.  Come one, come all; Get Hassled.

Jackson Holte & The Highway Patrol

Jackson Holte & The Highway Men at the Top Hat

Jackson Holte & The Highway Patrol is a 4-piece rock and roll band from Missoula, MT, formed by several of the townʼs greasiest bar-band veterans in 2017. Jackson Holte fronts the band with his own blend of earthy narrative songwriting and soaring blues guitar playing, and in the Highway Patrol – Marko “The Midnight Shadow” Capoferri on bass, Tyson Gerhardt on guitar, and Brian Tremper on drums – heʼs found three gentlemen who share his conviction that music can be both insightful and irreverent, both sophisticated and visceral, both deep and wide.

Together their sound is what ISSUES magazine called “a lo-fi, indy rock version of the great Americana music of the 1970s,” and if the bandʼs music seems retrospective, it may be only because Holte once picked up a copy of For the Sake of the Song and learned from Mickey Newburyʼs liner notes that “a writerʼs tools are truths, and truth doesnʼt change all that much.” With a firm grounding in Americaʼs folk traditions, the band is able to bound across genres in an authentic and emotive re-imagining of what a working rock and roll band can be.
