The Ill-Mo Boys have been playing together since 1985. Laugh and Grow Fat is their first recording in ten years and their first CD. In gathering the material for this album, the Ill-Mos have, for the most part, stuck a little closer to their home in Missouri. There are some nice tunes learned from fiddlers from all four corners of the state and points in between. They’ve also done some excavating through piles of old records and come up with some fine and spirited old songs by some of the early greats of country music. We hope you will sit back, kick off your shoes, and join us Ill-Mo style…while we laugh and grow fat…

Curtis Buckhannon – mandolins, banjomandolin, harmonica, vocals; Jim Nelson – guitar, vocals; Geoff Seitz – fiddle, vocals
