The Swamp Drivers Turn A Plunger Into A Great Sounding Guitar
The Swamp Drivers: Musicians with redneck ingenuity that make high energy music with unique instruments like no other band in the USA.
If you've seen The Swamp Drivers perform then you know how unique their instruments are. It's amazing that a plunger makes a great guitar. It's called the Crap-o-caster. Here's Terry (Mojo) Johnson telling the story of the Crap-o-caster. He can really play the crap out of it as you'll see.
The Swamp Drivers have been playing together for a little more than a year and have already been inducted into New York Blues Hall of Fame.They play primordial driving, rockin party music straight from the swamp. Their repertoire is a mix of crankin originals to covers from ZZ Top to BB King played on crazy homemade instruments ranging from a 1 string garden hoe to a 4 string boat oar.
Here is the first song that Terry wrote for the band before they even had a name. He was inspired by the Crap-o-casters look and sound.
