Weary Blues from "Jukin'"
Cousin Harley is the rocking hillbilly persona of Paul Pigat. This band has a hard-earned reputation for delivering everything from hot-rod rockabilly to foot stomping vintage country and western swing. Paul is joined by Keith Picot on upright bass and Jesse Cahill on drums to create an unstoppable rock 'n roll wrecking crew.
From classic honky tonk and cow punk rippers, to a helping of western swing and classic jump blues, Cousin Harley plays in the old tradition — slugging it out hot and heavy in roadhouses across the land.

Paul Pigat Trio
Boxcar Campfire is a mostly acoustic project, allowing Paul to explore traditional country blues, "High Lonesome" western music and other roots genres.
