Pay the Devil: Old-Timey Milwaukee Band With An Edge

Pay the Devil

Even the members of the Milwaukee band Pay the Devilhave trouble precisely describing the type of music they play. They group liberally mixes bluegrass, old-time country, sea shanties, Irish traditional, and folk, with a big dose of attitude.

The group has been playing together since 2011, and will perform Saturday night at G-Daddy’s BBC Bar and Grill on the East Side in support of their new album, called Wrong Side of the River.

Guitarist Ivan Baker, banjo player Ivan Eisenberg, mandolinist Matt Gibbons, and percussionist Jeremy Ault join Lake Effect's Bonnie North in the studio.
