May 30 Two Tons of Steel w/Special Guest: Scott Dean
May 30 @ 9:00 pm

Two Tons of Steel

If there’s one thing Texans love, it’s a good party. But if you ask self-respecting Lone Star carousers what turns a bash into a blast, they won’t say beer or barbecue. They know it all comes down to the music. And there’s one band that can rouse revelers like no other: Two Tons of Steel.

Two Tons’ rambunctious brand of country-rooted rock has been inspiring listeners in the great republic — and far beyond — for more than two decades, and with its 10th album, NOT THAT LUCKY, the band is ready to throw its weight around even more

Lead singer-acoustic guitarist Kevin Geil does the heavy lifting when it comes to describing the San Antonio-based band’s sound. “Two Tons is two tons of steel,” he says. “We’re kind of in your face, almost punk rock at times.”

It’s high-energy, that’s for sure. Inspired equally by Elvis Presley and the Ramones, Two Tons combines the talents of the kinetic Geil with Dennis Fallon on electric guitar, Chris Dodds on drums and harmony vocals, and Chris Rhoades on upright and electric bass, joined in the studio by regular contributor Danny Mathis on pedal and straight steel.

Scott Dean McCurry is a Dallas singer-songwriter who has been paving his own path on the Texas Music Scene for nearly a decade. Influenced by a vast range of styles; Scott has continually pushed the envelope with his personal spin on contemporary rock n’ roll. In 2013, Scott decided to transform his “fist-pumping sunshine rock” into a unique version of Texas Country, exchanging funky-rhythms and synthesizers for pedal-steel and fiddle. Although he has embarked on a new genre, two things still remain consistent; “his catchy upbeat melodies that get stuck in your head”, and his “raucous, energy-filled live performances”. In the process, he opted to drop “McCurry”, as to not be confused with a recent American Idol winner with a strikingly similar name.
Just recently, Scott put the finishing touches on his new EP, “Re-Shuffle”. Although it is his 5th studio album, it is his first Country release. The tunes are full of carefree energy that will make any youthful spirit want to crack open a cold-beer and start singing along. It was his intent to make each tune on the record uplifting and fun.
“Country tends to have the ability to make people either really happy or really sad, I wanted people to hear this music and wish they were out on a Saturday Night. Each song started as a rough idea written on a bar napkin with a couple of buddies, so I wanted that same essence to be captured in the studio…”
Although Scott has primarily spent the majority of his career in a different music realm, he constantly found himself playing within the Texas Country Scene. Gigging festivals and clubs with Texas Country legends like Robert Earl Keen and the Old 97s, and current acts like Kevin Fowler and Josh Abbott. Channeling his love for old school country, like The Flying Burrito Brothers and Jerry Jeff Walker, Scott decided to go all in this year, and re-shuffle his music career; hence the album name.
“Making this kind of music is something I’ve wanted to do for years. Living in Texas my entire life, I have always been exposed to it, and always had such an admiration for classic country and its ability to vividly bring stories to life.”

From opening a sold out show at the oldest dance hall in Texas, to singing on the top of a snow-covered mountain in Colorado, Shane Smith and The Saints have managed to cover serious ground in the Texas music front without an album to their name. After two years of hard work, the wait is finally over with the highly-anticipated release of the debut album Coast.
