Honky-Tonk / Christmas // For Fans of: Dwight Yoakam, Ernest Tubb, The Reverend Horton Heat, Dale Watson

The Krampus 3 were born in the heart of the icy winter solstice in 2018. Long irritated and teased by the popularity of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You”, these three demons arose to sing terrible, sad songs about everyone’s favorite holiday.

They have performed two seasons of playing live, raucous shows during the last few Xmas seasons to bring joy, pain and misery to all who tire of boring, traditional Christmas music.

In 2019 Krampus #2 Brian Johanson wrote a few original songs and they took them to the Audio Fort in Fort Collins, CO, to spread the word of Krampi everywhere and promote their brand of misery and “wit”.

Brian plays most shows in only his grandma’s xmas vest. 

The Krampus 3 is:

Brian Johanson – Acoustic guitar and vocals
Josh Long – Electric guitar
Mark Verschoor – Upright Bass
