We enjoyed Arkansauce's genre-hopping meld of bluegrass, Americana, blues and funk at the Zoo this year and are looking forward to seeing them in the intimate FUSION space. This will be a mostly standing/dancing setup with limited chairs.
The music of Arkansauce calls forth melodies of the Ozark Mountains' rolling hills and raging rivers with their distinct blend of newgrass. This progressive string quartet features Tom Andersen on bass, guitarist Zac Archuleta, Ethan Bush on mandolin, and Adams Collins on banjo. Their music features improvisational string leads matched with complex melodies, intriguing rhythms, and deep thumping bass grooves. Each member sings lead and harmony parts as well as contributes to the lyrics, which offer authentic, intelligent songwriting with hard-hitting hooks.
They are a band inspired not only from their home state of Arkansas, but also throughout their travels. "We are a band that spends most of our time in the back of a van hurtling toward long nights, good times, and a destiny unknown," says Ethan. "Our inspiration is gathered by events unfolding in our own adventures in real time. These days, the desire to create, inspire, and redefine within our scene seems to be the main driving force behind our music. From a young age we were huge fans of live music and were introduced to a lot of great music by our families."
The band was founded in 2011 after Zac and Ethan, who had grown up across the street from one another in Johnson County, Arkansas, moved to Fayetteville. Tom and Adams were slowly introduced to them through the tight-knit Fayetteville music community and in 2014 Adams and Tom filled in on the fly—magic was made on the stage that night, and the lineup was forever changed.
