AJ HOBBS is your only call when it comes to booking real country music--if you're a fan of classic, outlaw, traditional, 50s/60s/70s/80s/90s country music, I'm your guy. I also play tons of southern rock.
Here's what LA Record Magazine says about me:
"AJ makes hardcore country music like his daddy was Jerry Jeff Walker and his mother was one of those undefeatable women from Terry Allen's Lubbock (On Everything)."
I've played with everyone from Shooter Jennings to Earl Poole Ball (Johnny Cash's piano player) and some of the best country acts in LA and OC. I've recently travelled to Nashville to play for the Americana Music Festival and play regularly on stages all over California. And wherever I go I play with a smokin' hot band that have gigged with some of the BEST country acts in the biz, including Billy Joe Shaver, The Mavericks, Johnny Cash, Shooter Jennings, Tony Joe White, Dwight Yoakam and Jessi Colter.
So if you're a fan of Willie, Waylon, Merle, Buck Owens, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, David Allan Coe, Toby Keith, Randy Travis, Asleep At The Wheel, Zac Brown Band, CCR, Bruce Springsteen, Dwight Yoakam, Jerry Reed, The Band, Jerry Jeff Walker, Terry Allen, Kenny Rogers, George Jones, Travis Tritt, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Garth and all the greats...again look no further!
I am versatile as well--I can play as a solo act, duo, trio and full band. I can bring any instrument that you want to hear in my country ensemble: fiddle, pedal steel, harmonica, upright bass, jug, washboard, you name it!
I know it's hard to find an act out there that plays real country music with real players, so when you're looking for a night of good country fun, something down home and maybe a little rowdy, give me a call!
