Their press release:

Nobody puts Molasses Creek in a box. That may be because of their claustrophobia and personal space issues. But it has manifested in a 26 year run of unpredictable and delightful musical choices. Each member contributes ideas and original music. They move between whimsical and sincere in a way that makes you believe that balancing both might be the key to life. Molasses Creek up — blood pressure down. Try it. It works. ~ Louis Allen

For 26 years, Molasses Creek’s high-energy performances and heartfelt songwriting has brought the love of their coastal home of Ocracoke Island, NC to the stage. The band’s elegant harmonies and arrangements, stellar songwriting, blazing instrumentals, and quirky sense of humor have won loyal followers throughout the United States and around the world.
