The Sapsuckers write and perform original country/Americana songs that blend humor, heartache, and honky-tonk.
With an eclectic style that ranges from hillbilly roots to Nashville pop, the songwriting team of Nikki Grossman and Joe Hart has developed a lively, contemporary take on country music. Their creative lyrics, catchy melodies, and clever stage show have earned them a growing fanbase in the Midwest and beyond.
In early 2020, Grossman (guitar, fiddle, vocals) and Hart (guitar, mandolin, vocals) relocated to St. Louis to form a new lineup as The Sapsuckers Band, featuring Ryan Koenig (mandolin, lap steel, accordion, and harp) and Joey Glynn (upright bass). Koenig and Glynn have performed together for years in a variety of bands, including the Rum Drum Ramblers and as Pokey La Farge’s South City Three. The new lineup is currently booking live shows in 2020 and beyond.
