Back on the Ogden Music Festival Stage for their third year running, the Sister Wives kick off the 2011 festival in style.
Sister Wives first public gig was in January 2003. Since that time, the band has appeared twice on Channel 4's Good Things Utah, performed three times on the Festival Stage at the Utah Arts Festival, KRCL's Day in the Park, and been named one the of the Best New Bands of the Year in the SLAMMy's (Salt Lake Music Awards) voted by the readers of Salt Lake City Weekly Magazine.
"A lot of people tell me they don't like country music, but they like what I am doing," says Junior Brown. "I hear that line more than anything else," which is ironic because a couple of licks is all it takes to erase any doubts concerning Junior's stylistic allegiance. His music combines the soul of country and the spirit of rock n' roll.
