The Chitlins are a band of musical brothers that came together along the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico, in the coastal city of Gulfport, Mississippi. They take a back-to-the-basics approach to their brand of music. A mixture of rock, blues and country. Influenced by the culture and traditions of the southern way of life....and being held to no boundaries. A bit rough around the edges, yet cooked up with true soul and served up piping hot!!!!
