Country Jim and his band of super talented band members with tons of history behind them will be here Thursday!
Join us at 8:30 pm. Tickets are $5 at the door.
On this night, we take off all the tables on the dance floor so there’s plenty of room to dance!
Founding members Matt Briggs, James Tommey, and Zack Walther released their debut EP in May 2013 and are currently touring Texas and the Southwest. With James on bass, Zack on lead vocals and guitar, and Matt on drums, the trio fills bars and dance halls with sounds ranging from harmonica, whistling, and three-part harmonies to gritty, chest-pounding rock.
Born out of the intuition of Berklee College of Music dropouts and backyard bullshitters alike, we are The Drugstore Gypsies. Technicality is a big factor we put in to every song composed, but the live show, on the other hand, is as wild as any ace you bring to the table. With a unique blend of southern rock riffs and solid country sounds, we have a musical styling all our own. Accordingly, therefore, consequentially, ergo, incidentally, hence thus forth, however uniquely enough, our influences include everything from Conway Twitty to Led Zeppelin. Then when it comes to the live show, you have got to geaux czech us out!
To hear Curtis Grimes sing is to take a trip through the heart of country music. A Texas native, Curtis was raised on a steady diet of George Strait and Alan Jackson, and he possesses the everyman charm of both his heroes, along with a refreshingly mature voice that—in an era of country raps and pop beats—truly stands out.
We play country music. We like country music. We like playing country music.
That’s the gist – but here’s some fun stuff too:
Steven and Andrew McWilliams, Louisiana-born and Texas-raised brothers, have played country music together since they could wrap their hands around their dad’s guitar. In 2013, the brothers release their sophomore alum (“Revival”) to country radio. This record, produced by Erik Herbst (Eli Young, Norah Jones, The Eagles), is supported by countless live shows throughout the south. No strangers to flat tires and engine failures, the band has visited nearly every honky-tonk in Texas.
When Dwayne Bollmeyer and Derron Bell (guitar and percussion) teamed up with the brothers in mid-2010, the band became the best it has ever been. From symphony halls to rodeos, veterans Dwayne and Derron have played almost every kind of gig imaginable.
