Poor Man's Whiskey (also known as PMW) emerged from a rich and vibrant musical scene north of the Golden Gate. What began as a fun side project playing bluegrass instruments quickly evolved into a full time endeavor. Recently, they have performed at such venues as the Fillmore and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. PMW weaves a musical tapestry that is influenced by a wide variety of American music. Rooted in acoustic music, PMW's sound spills into rock, funk, pop, blues, and even disco.
