The Nag Champions Mystery Band established itself in 2016 as a project created by Derek Gresh and soon featured Ed Hofer on percussion and Tim Homerski on bass and keyboards.  The group was founded on the principle of constantly creating non-disposable, genuine songs and music. The group's sound harkens back to the golden age of rock and pop music and provides a uniquely familiar sound within all of their diverse material. The Nag Champions sound is a balance of the warm, relatable sounds of the past and the weird, fuzzy crunch of the unknown future.

The project started as a kind of solo effort by Gresh but quickly became a full-fledged band employing the use of various drums and percussion instruments as well as the sounds of acoustic instrumentation such as banjo, mandolin, and flute. Drawing from classic rock and roll, blues, folk, and country music the band blends together sounds of the past, present, and future. The group is also known to explore the psychedelic realm with spacious, often improvised,  instrumentals providing a fine balance of heavy and light.

The Nag Champions Mystery Band is intent on adapting to any circumstance and willing to play in any kind of set up or arrangement whether that is a minimal acoustic duo or a complete multi-instrumental rock band. This band is a group of musicians and artists that always embrace the unknown on their constant exploration of musical space.
