Steel Skarecrow features top notch musicianship and three-part harmonies. The foundation of the band is nineties country, however you will hear modern country, red dirt, classic country, and maybe even a little western swing at every Steel Skarecrow show. 


Steel Skarecrow shows are professional, upbeat, high energy, and fun! We love to interact with the audience, take requests, get to know people. Every cover song played at a Steel Skarecrow show will be recognized by the audience, one they can can sing along with, and all of them are danceable.
