A supergroup comprised of members of Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and more has formed -- and on Saturday, it's marking its debut by playing six shows in one night.

Salvador Dali Parton  -- made up of Winston Marshall (Mumford & Sons), Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), Jake Orrall (JEFF the Brotherhood), Mike Harris (Apache Relay) and Justin Hayward-Young (The Vaccines) -- will ring in its very existence, Nashville Scene reports, by having its first practice as a band tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 25), followed by its live debut on Saturday (Oct. 26). This is after a songwriting session that began today.

On Saturday, Salvador Dali Parton will perform in six different locales in the Nashville area, starting at 6:45 p.m. at The High Watt. Five additional shows are to take place, with the band's final show currently announced as a house show at 11 p.m. One of the appearances still does not have a time or location but is expected to be announced the day of the show. Judging by the schedule, each set will last anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes -- if that -- before it's off to the next venue.

The band plans to release a live album compiling the best bits of the evening.

No word on what the band is going to sound like or who will have which duties inside the group. Either way, it's good to know at least one of the guys from Mumford is having some fun during the band's hiatus.
