Honky Tonk Blues is a 5-piece band featuring songs from the time when the lines between the various types of country music were not so distinct. Bluegrass, "hillbilly" western, rockabilly were all still close. The music is very danceable, touching and FUN!
The influences range from the duets of the Louvin Brothers, to Hank Williams, Johnny & Jack, Ray Price, Johnny Cash and many other "classic" performers from the '40's to the '70's. All members are also proficient on multiple bluegrass instruments.
In addition to the ballads and story-songs, we offer twin fiddles, hot fiddling and picking on the lap-steel, dobro, mandolin and "mando-caster."
All members are mature, consumate professional musicians. They are friendly and personable, and a sure-fire hit for your event.
