Hick’ry Switch is performing at 7:00 p.m. as the opening act for Dennis Johnson & The Mississippi Ramblers on the Levitt AMP concert.
Hick’ry Switch is a Carson City band comprised of four people who love to play music. Established in 2003 as a bluegrass band, it has since transitioned to an Americana/ Indie-grass sound including a nice mix of homegrown tunes. Mark Johnson is a powerful, melodic banjo player who has a unique sound from years of playing lead guitar in country western bands in Montana. Cory King plays passionate improvisational mandolin to the heavens and back. Kate Johnson provides a solid rhythm platform and has a unique mid to high range singing voice. Mike Suglia brings his solid electric bass along with a wide background of blues, reggae and rock. All members lend their voices to both lead and harmony singing – resulting in a well rounded, clean and hard driving sound.
