The Fossils first came together during a series of jam sessions at Mike Stevenson’s house in Lockhart in 2001. A shared love of 60s rock and roll, blues, and honky-tonk music was the magnetic force which caused the band to coalesce. By 2002, the line-up of musicians was set.
The Fossils play an earthy blend of classic tunes, more obscure personal favorites, and originals. The hallmark of the band is the fun they share with each other and the audience. If it’s not fun, it’s not the Fossils. Dig it.
