Nestled in 150 acres of farmland surrounded by the Manistee National Forest, Hoxeyville Music Festival is a testament to pure north country peace and celebration.

Deep Fried Pickle Project

In 2002 a mysterious green iceberg was discovered by a band of unemployed pirates in Lake Michigan . Frozen inside were the Pickle Boys, cold solid in a chunk of sour brine. The DFPP were hoisted aboard, chiseled free and re-animated by the ships crude pirate scientist chef using a combination of spirits and pickle juice. As the DFPP awoke from their icy slumber they started singing and have never stopped. Where the Pickles came from and where they are going remains a mystery

From outhouse to henhouse to waffle house to public house both hither and yon the Pickles have caused a rafter-shaking ruckus wherever they roll, dreaming a hobo's knapsack of stories and songs along the way.

These Pickle fellers have wobbled their magical musical gypsy medicine wagon from one end of this here country to t'other, with stops including LOLLAPALOOZA, WAKARUSA and TELLURIDE along the way.

What fanciful fuel powers this bubbling band of minstrels you say? Why, it is Pickle Power- the power to fabricate mutant musical instruments and sea shanties. The power to shatter a bar full of whisky glasses with sonic ferocity one night, then serenade a giggling group of itty bitty kids the next morning. From the great Depression to the Great Recession, the Pickles run the gamut of old timey styles, even grabbing an occasional 80's pop tune and turning it into a flap happy chicken scratchy 78 RPM tune.
