Honky Tonkitis is honky tonk served the way it used to be: the sound of Hank Williams, Ray Price, Faron Young, George Jones and Johnny Cash.
Honky Tonkitis brings back that honky tonk music your grandpa and daddy listened to when you were a kid. Honky Tonkitis has been playing live shows in the Wisconsin area since 2008. Along the way we've hit such big name venues as Wisconsin State Fair and Bastille Days, as well as your favorite watering holes such as Bay View Brew Haus and Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall, to name just a few. Our live shows have a reputation for being obnoxious, cantankerous, and confrontational, and that's just the audience! We live for being assaulted by the drunken fools in the crowd who feel they need to be the center of attention. It's our goal to make them regret that decision. For those of you who like your music like your drinks (strong, long, and with a lotta bite), Honky Tonkitis is your kind of band. We are available for private performances.
Honky Tonkitis has released two albums' worth of original material: The 15 song "You Drink and Drive Me Crazy" and the 16 song "Deep End of the Blottle." They are currently working on releasing their newest CD in Spring of 2012.
Whether it's loving odes to your favorite beer (P-B-R my A-S-S), commiserating over a lost love at the bar (Pour Me), or fighting to take life by the horns while holding a half-empty bottle (Heavy Lifting Calls For Heavy Drinking), Honky Tonkitis brings back the glory days of life spent plugging the jukebox while hiding from your old lady in a smoky old joint down the block.
