The best description of the musical attitude and style of this band can be summed up by the phrase 'Old-School Country.' When you hear them play, it's hard to miss this band's biggest country influences such as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, and Patsy Cline. During live shows, the band offers up a mix of modern country, classic country, Texas rock, and original songs, always incorporating varying tempos and styles to keep the dancing crowd on their toes. Some crowd favorites include "Folsom Prison Blues", "Seminole Wind", "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink" and "Texas When I Die." This band is all about entertaining, having a great time, and bringing the crowd into the experience with them.
Todd Bonner and Beth Matlock are the two originators of this Longview, TX based band. While playing in a late night patio jam session in Longview, Bonner and Matlock met up and began singin' and pickin' at various local venues together – Bonner on guitar and Matlock adding fiddle and mandolin to the mix. Dave Day, who also shares his talent on vocals, joined the group playing guitar and harmonica. Elton and Janna Smith round out the sound on steel and bass. Bobby Dunn provides a drivin' country beat on drums and percussion. The culmination of talent in this band truly represents a wide range of country, giving crowds a true Texas sound that's hard to beat!
