Some bands are content to remain within the rigid confines of their musical comfort zones. The Chubby Knuckle Choir is not one of those bands. Nobody gleefully shatters genre boundaries like this frenetic foursome, who play everything from bongos to banjos onstage.

In the past five years, this creative group has earned comparisons to acts like The Gourds, the Wood Brothers, and Asylum Street Spankers, and has steadily built a dedicated fan base that’s drawn to the Choir’s joyful noise. In 2014, the band was awarded the Bugle Boy Talent Trust, which assists promising, up-and-coming artists (previous recipients include Grammy-nominated Americana singer-songwriter John Fullbright). They also appeared on syndicated radio show “Real Life, Real Music” and television program “Songwriters Across Texas,” bringing their eclectic sound to a whole new audience.

Now based in Austin, the Chubby Knuckle Choir is currently preparing its debut album, Reveille (the title being a sly nod to Bugle Boy), which is slated for release on March 10, 2015. Recorded live in Austin’s Congress House Studio and produced and engineered by Andre Moran (Hot Club of Cowtown, Eliza Gilkyson), the record sizzles with the high-spirited energy of a Chubby Knuckle live show. The band plans to celebrate Reveille, which includes guest appearances by Glenn Fukunaga and Sons of Fathers’ David Beck, with a album release tour as well as make its second appearance on “The Texas Music Scene,” a regionally produced TV music series hosted by the legendary Ray Benson (performing first on the show in 2013).
