pinkerton and the brinks


We are a fun-loving 4 piece acoustic band, all from Charleston. We defy categories but usually are described somewhere within genres of rock/americana, indie/alternative or sometimes "non traditional bluegrass-type" band. We call it Flip Flop Stomp, Front Porch Rock, or Modern Old Time.

We play some catchy organic originals, and we re-work covers of the best rock songs to fit our style for a fresh modern sound. Then we mix in some Old Time just to keep everyone on their toes. From Flatt And Scruggs to Sublime And MGMT and back in nothing flat. Hank Williams to Houndmouth without a bark. It works! Folks dig the vibe. We can fill a 3 hour set, no problem.

Our core instruments are guitar, banjo, mandolin, and cajon. We are all vocalists and multi-instrumentalists and may throw in harmonica, trumpet, accordion, keyboards, drum set, native american flute, and whatever else is at hand.
