North Mississippi Allstars is an American rock/blues jam band from Hernando, Mississippi, founded in 1996. The band is composed of brothers Luther Dickinson (guitar, vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, keyboards, electric washboard), and Chris Chew (electric bass guitar). Duwayne Burnside, who formerly played second guitar in the band, is a son of R.L. Burnside (who has also played on some of the band’s tracks).

The Allstars’ first release, Shake Hands With Shorty, was nominated for a Grammy Award 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 Blues Music Award for “Best New Artist Debut” in 2001.

The band has been the backing band for John Hiatt, including appearing on the album “Master of Disaster”.

All the members of the Allstars have also teamed up with Robert Randolph and John Medeski to form The Word.

In November 2007, Luther Dickinson joined The Black Crowes as lead guitarist, and has appeared on their albums Warpaint (2008), Before the Frost…Until the Freeze (2009) and Croweology (2010).
