Led by Jesse Braintree the ringmaster of this amazing Texas variety show, the Hogg family is a different kind of country. Think the Beverley Hillbillies with intelligence. Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show on steroids. The Hee Haw TV program at maximum warp. Or if the Osmond Brothers were total rednecks!
When you book The Hogg Brothers you get an entertaining night that is both exquisitely played music and can’t-take-your-eyes-off-‘em showmanship.
Besides singing Jesse Braintree plays percussion and wind instruments too. But it is his showmanship that captivates and has this group touring across the USA.
We can even offer our 3 piece acoustic option for smaller venues or needs.
Price Range: $250-3000
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Expect to be entertained.
A true variety show of country music and a little comedy. We can do all originals from our albums or all classic/current country music covers or a combination of both to provide a entertaining experience for audiences of all ages. From outdoor festivals and private parties to nightclubs, VFW posts and indie rock clubs, you name it Jesse and The Hogg Brothers are focused on making the audience have a great time to remember.
Jesse and his musical family have been performing since the mid 80's with its roots in Texas. In 2013 Jesse moved the band up to Boston but make no mistake they are TX proud and the music covers Tex Mex, Country, Southern Rock, Texas Swing, Bluegrass and what some have labeled as Cow Punk! Both Jesse and his little girl Lisa Mari doing the lead vocals with solid musicianship and harmonies amongst the Hoggs insures a special Live experience!
Worcester Telegram & Gazette
This is a band with a wicked sense of humor and absolutely no fear. More importantly, this is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass and Southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence and a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny. “ - Victor D Infante
These Texas transplants (no, They're not from Hazard County; those are different Hoggs) say they play the country music they watched on Hee Haw when they were growing up, by which they mean the sweet spot of honky-tonk practiced by the likes of Buck Owens, George Jones and Merle Haggard.
Jesse and his cousins have been playing all over the states with a hilariously entertaining show that showcases original tracks from their first two albums/CD’s expertly mixed with classic covers from country’s greatest legends all with a unique Hogg Brothers southern sense of humor.
“If this was just a band making white trash jokes and wearing Billy Bob teeth and using fake twangs this might suck. But the beauty of the Hoggs ( who are not above white trash jokes, Billy Bob teeth and fake twangs) is that they are also making super earnest country music, old time stuff, including CB trucking songs, odes to America, and Christmas songs on both albums. If you can't get enough of the crude Southerner comedy (and a zillion Larry The Cable Guy fans can't be wrong) meets 1968 Opry music then get both CD's. Other curious folks get the second CD, as it includes some improved versions of the "hits" from the first one.” - Flamin' Waymon Timbsdayle

Influences & Inspiration
So many have but probably best stated as the artists that played on Hee Haw like Buck Owens, Johhny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones as well as contemporary artists like Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, The Tractors, Hank Williams Jr, Gary Allan, Hank III and of course country rock artists like The Byrds, John Fogarty and The Flying Burrito Brothers to name a few. I can't omit Elvis Presley either as he was not just the king of Rock N Roll, he had many country hits too.
