In 2005, three young musicians decided to travel every Thursday night to sit in the home of legendary fiddler Joe Thompson for a musical jam session. When the three students decided to form the Carolina Chocolate Drops, they did it mostly as tribute to Thompson, performing his music in dance halls. Specializing in traditional southern music but with a modern twist, the band was an upstart in a stable of deep tradition. With high profile shows including the Grand Ole Opry and the release of albums like Genuine Negro Jig and Luminescent Orchestrii, the group has confirmed its place in the music pantheon with Rolling Stone Magazine describing the band's style as "dirt-floor-dance electricity."
