The Tripwire Band is from Springfield MO. Their individual talent and their combined passion for their music could be in fact the reason why this band is a true Ozarks favorite. Giving it their best and always bringing the crowd to their feet. These guys are the missing link between rock and blues!!

Many words have been used to describe this blues trio from Southwest Missouri, “High energy, rock solid, intense, a blues machine!” Their performances have continually earned rave reviews from blues fans, the music press, and industry professionals throughout the midwest. Tripwire formed in the summer of ‘99, and began performing blues with the showmanship, intensity, and energy of souls on fire. This has propelled Tripwire to the front of the blues music scene regionally, performing at the most noted blues venues across the midwest. Tripwire has represented two of the Ozarks most active blues societies five times at the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN. With their fifth CD currently in production, Tripwire, continues to carry on the blues tradition, performing as headliners, as well as sharing the bill with some of the most popular names in the business; Tommy Castro, North Mississippi Allstars, Fabulous Thunderbirds, and BB King, just to name a few! The band also finds time in their busy schedule to perform at some of the region’s biggest charity events, promoting awareness of blues music while raising money for many various charitable organizations and blues society projects
