“This is a band with a wicked sense of humor and absolutely no fear. More importantly, this is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass and southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence and a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny. ”

JESSE & THE HOGG BROTHERS
“If this was just a band making white trash jokes and wearing Billy Bob teeth and using fake twangs this might suck. But the beauty of the Hoggs ( who are not above white trash jokes, Billy Bob teeth and fake twangs) is that they are also making super earnest country music, old time stuff, including CB trucking songs, odes to America, and Christmas songs on both albums. If you can't get enough of the crude Southerner comedy (and a zillion Larry The Cable Guy fans can't be wrong) meets 1968 Opry music then get both CD's. Other curious folks get the second CD, as it includes some improved versions of the "hits" from the first one.” - Flamin' Waymon Timbsdayle
These Texas transplants (no, They're not from Hazard County; those are different Hoggs) say they play the country music they watched on Hee Haw when they were growing up, by which they mean the sweet spot of honky-tonk practiced by the likes of Buck Owens, George Jones and Merle Haggard.

“Everything you really need to know about Jesse & the Hogg Brothers can be found in songs such as "Are You Available for Datin'." This is a band with a wicked sense of humor and absolutely no fear. More importantly, this is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass and Southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence and a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny. “ - Victor D Infante
Jesse and his cousins have been playing all over the states with a hilariously entertaining show that showcases original tracks from their first two albums/CD’s expertly mixed with classic covers from country’s greatest legends all with a unique Hogg Brothers southern sense of humor.
Grab stomping’ crazy trailer redneck trash fun for your buns! Ya like the nitty gritty of the country silly dirt band? Here’s one I discovered over the inter webs highway of myspace.com I listened to a bit of”White Trash Meth Lab” and had me a chuckle. Also with their song for the movie “Biker Ann” which I gotta see and I also gotta see them! The pigs are a squealing as we wait for Jesse & The Hogg Brothers to come to our town!

"House Husband" is what every woman really wants, a man to do all the housework, cooking and shopping and still put out! People say country music is about losing your job, your love, your dog but these guys are just plain down to earth funny and are going straight to my iPod! - Laurie Johnson - The Bridge Paper
"Non-Stop Thrills in this irreverent country music debut. The CD contains more talent than is implied by the song titles. Highly recommended if you enjoy laughing your ass off!" CC - Stubble Musiczine
LIVE ON WEMF
On Saturday September 5th, Jesse & The Hogg Brothers came into WEMF to play a few songs on the brand new sound board. The 1st band on the air on the system. Hosted by Spo
Led by Jesse Braintree the ringmaster of this amazing Texas variety show, the Hogg family is a different kind of country. Think the Beverley Hillbillies with intelligence. Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show on steroids. The Hee Haw TV program at maximum warp. If The Osmond Brothers were total rednecks!
When you book The Hogg Brothers you get an entertaining night that is both exquisitely played music and can’t-take-your-eyes-off-‘em showmanship.
Besides singing Jesse Braintree plays percussion and wind instruments too. But it is his showmanship that captivates and has this group touring across the USA for shows as far west as Las Vegas!
Indiana, Massachusetts, Ohio, Rhode Island and Texas are the current home states of this creative ensemble, old-style country and western burlesque, if you will !
