Our Latest Release is:


A Milwaukee String Band Playing Traditional American Music

Pay the Devil got together in the winter of 2011 and have been playing around the Milwaukee area ever since. Playing an eclectic mix of acoustic original tunes, sea shanties, bluegrass, folk, rock, celtic, traditional, and obscure songs, this quartet made up of a guitar, mandolin, banjo, and washboard (spoons and assorted percussion instruments) puts on a fun live show filled with footstomping, thighslapping music. If you are a bluegrass music fan in the Milwaukee area then Pay the Devil is for you.
