 Papa Green Shoes is a
high-energy 4-piece
band rooted in modern blues
with touches of soul, funk, & rock. 


Based out of Springfield, Missouri, 

the Cottengim Brothers, Jody and Stoney Lee, have been a staple in the Ozarks' music scene for decades. 


With the addition of Casey Kavanagh on sax and keys and Dean Dazey on bass, PGS has solidified itself as one of the funkiest, soul-filling blues bands you’ll ever hear.
