Howdy Honky Tonkers!
Yep, it's me again, Ol' Slim. This time I am here just to remind y'all that tomorrow night is a great night to head to The Treehouse in Grandview and get you an ear full of country music and folky kinds of sounds. The Averys have lined up a couple of acts to share the bill and they are sure to please you.
Seems like just about every time we book a show and we go to decide who we want to play with, the first name we come up with is Joshua James. I think we are trying to get him to come out so often and play these shows is because we are still tryin' to figure out how he does what he does and why it is so mesmerizing. He's not really country, as such, but he's sure as hell more interesting than "folk". The term "singer-songwriter" probably applies, in a technical sense, but Joshua is one hell of a lot more interesting and original than anyone else you might hang that tag on. Why don't y'all do yourselves and us a big favor and come on out to The Treehouse tomorrow night, and maybe between us we can figure out what the hell it is that Joshua James does that is so irrisistable?
Also on the bill tomorrow night is an act that we are happy to bring out with us for the first time, and they are called The BS Country and Western Band. Our buddy Chris Bingman, from Bluegrass stalwarts Springfield Special, has put together a duet act that specializes in the old time sounds. We think that the name of the act is comprised of the initials of the two members (B and S), but it is possible that they are implying something else. We will be sure to ask them when we see them tomorrow night.
Now, since our steel man Breeze, from The Averys, is otherwise engaged tomorrow night, we have an opportunity to invite a guest steel player in to help us out. Chris Adams will be on hand to add that special something to our set that can only come from a steel guitar, and we are happy to have him on board. We always like to have guests join in, and we are looking forward to playing a tight set of classic songs and original country tunes for you tomorrow night at The Treehouse. We'll see y'all there!
