North Mississippi Allstars is a blues-rock/jam band band from Hernando, Mississippi founded in 1996. The band is composed of brothers Luther Dickinson (guitar, vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, keyboards), and Chris Chew (electric bass guitar). In addition to the guitar, Dickinson also plays a cigar box guitar called the "lowebow." Duwayne Burnside, who formerly played second guitar in the band, is a son of country blues legend R. L. Burnside (who also played on some of the band's tracks).
The Allstars first release Shake Hands With Shorty was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Contemporary Blues Album". Since then, 51 Phantom and Electric Blue Watermelon have received nominations in that same category. The group also won a W.C. Handy Award for "Best New Artist Debut" in 2001.
The band now backs up and tours with John Hiatt. They have released an album with him entitled Master of Disaster.
All the members of the Allstars have also teamed up with Robert Randolph and John Medeski to form The Word
