Knotty Pine hosts Aaron Davis’s Mystery Machine this Saturday

TETON VALLEY, IDAHO – Renaissance man of song, Kentucky native Aaron Davis has led a handful of original-minded projects over his sixteen years in the Tetons. Folks here at The Knotty Pine have been witness to the searing slide guitar ala Duane Allman and the occasionally quirky, always grooving roots-rock and Americana that Davis has come to pen for Screen Door Porch, Boondocks and now, Davis’s Mystery Machine. The Drictor Party at the Knotty Pine on Saturday will showcase an all-star lineup playing predominantly new music from Davis’s vault of homespun material.

Settling into a new role as frontman for the revolving door project that is the Mystery Machine has meant a fair amount of teetering on the edge. The lineup for this show is even different from last month’s two-night run at the Silver Dollar. The Teton Valley-heavy lineup for Saturday is David Bundy (bass), Greg Creamer (guitar), Ben Winship (mandolin, vocals) and newcomer Mike Patton (piano, organ) along with Jacksonite Shawn Fleming (drums, voc) and Davis (vocals, electric & resonator guitars, banjo). A version of the Machine will hit the road this summer for Mansface Mountain Music Festival, NIC Fest, Hot Springs State Park Concert Series and Beartrap Summer Festival, among others.

“I can’t think of a better room to grow these songs,” Davis said of the Knotty Pine. “There are so many genuine music lovers in Teton Valley and that reciprocal vibe really pushes us to deliver the goods.”

Davis is an award-winning songwriter, engineer/producer and co-founder of the multi-act WYOmericana Caravan Tour and national touring band Screen Door Porch, which announced an indefinite hiatus last September after touring nationally for a decade and releasing four studio albums. He’s also the founder of five-piece blues-rock outfit Boondocks, the monthly concert series Songwriter’s Alley, and engineers recording projects from his own Three Hearted Studio. As a solo artist, Davis released Rear View Mirror in 2008, and has shared bills with Wilco, Willie Nelson, James McMurtry, Kaki King and Yonder Mountain String Band along the way.

Aaron Davis’s Mystery Machine perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Knotty Pine in Victor. $5.
