Hailing from the cave-ridden region of western Kentucky, The Lost River Cavemen have been playing Rock and Roll on Bluegrass instruments since 2005. Always the innovators, The Lost River Cavemen dig up roots music and shower it with a modern seasoning that will leave your palate tingling.
Artfully taking parts of Folk-Rock, Americana, and Country (among others), The Cavemen spin their music into a truly original aural presentation that is easily accessible to everyone from college kids to grandmas.
Their live show creates an atmosphere filled with good vibes and the kind of buzz that makes you want to drink and dance all night. They put on a high-energy show that is not only a pleasure to listen to but also a great pleasure to watch. Their songs tell stories of real-life experiences and hardships. While many of their songs have a serious tone, The Cavemen definitely aren’t afraid of throwing a little bit of tongue-in-cheek humor into their lyrics. Their eclectic mix of musical and lyrical styles will keep you guessing until the end of the performance.
With haunting vocals and lyrics supported by a warm acoustic guitar, Michael McMillian holds up the front end with a passion unparalleled by any lead singer. Joshua Riddle (percussion) and Kelly Wilson (stand-up bass) intertwine rhythm and catchy beats that are the essential backbone of this musical opus. The icing on the cake is the bone-chilling precision of Steven Stewart's fiddle playing that laces itself in and out of every song.
