To call the music of the David Wax Museum spirited is all at once the truth, but also a bit of an understatement. Since forming in 2009 this band, which at its core is the duo of David Wax and Suz Slezak, has maintained a fierce independent personality and relied on a grassroots approach to spreading their music. They’ve blossomed thanks to their passionate live shows and now their latest album, Knock Knock Get Up, is matching that excitement.

David Wax Museum The David Wax Museum fuses traditional Mexican and American folk music into what the band refers to as “Mexo-Americana,” a style that is lively and unique. Museum’s breakthrough came during a performance at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival after which they were dubbed the breakout act of the festival.
