Biography

The Dixie Highway Crashers is a progressive acoustic ensemble that explores the integration of bluegrass and American fiddle music with pop, soul, classic rock and string musics of Latin America and the Caribbean. The music is a reflection of the mosaic of influences present in South Florida. With roots in multiple traditions and branches reaching in innovative directions, the ensemble illustrates commonalities between cultures and genres while creating a sound that is fresh and unique.

Originally formed as The Wynwoods, and intermittently known as The Wynwood String Band, the band re-branded as The Dixie Highway Crashers in response to changes in personnel and several non-catastrophic fender benders. The Dixie Highway Crashers has an electric incarnation, known as Zë, which features the same personnel and some of the same original music manifested with different musical tools. You can catch The Dixie Highway Crashers or Zë performing at the popular venue Lagniappe House in Miami’s Design District on most Thursday nights (though there are exceptions). You can also see The Dixie Highway Crashers performing often at various locations around Dade county and beyond. Please see the “Upcoming Performances” section for a listing of events.

The Dixie Highway Crashers enjoy performing at weddings and private parties and maintain a repertoire of popular songs for such occasions. Contact us if you are interested in booking the band for your event.
