Ben Miller Band Turn Junk Into Funk

According to the Ben Miller Band, they occupy a unique position in Ozark Stomp music. They are its only practitioners! But whatever you want to call it, this trio of rugged dudes from Joplin, Mo., can lay down some seriously sweet blues with their homemade instruments. For “Get Right Church,” the guys are using a cigar box guitar, telephone mic, washtub bass and a drum set. At other times, they’ll break out the electric washboard and electric spoons, trombone, mandolin or whatever else they find laying around. Check out this resourceful band in their exclusive CMT Edge performance of “Get Right Church.”
