Holy Heck! Hold yer Fire, Honey! No need to be hot-headed- how’s about we hear some Honky Tonk Habit at the Hoe-Down? It’s one Hootenanny that’s worth brushin’ off your boots and puttin’ on your tassels fer! Kris and Lindy Jones, (hailing from a barn loft in Haines), Maridon Boario and Bob Banghart (roaming the range in Juneau) will have you kickin’ up your heels to some of the best old time country tunes this far north of Texas! They might even persuade your toes to start two-steppin’!
The sound may come from the south, but the vivid images of the places that have touched their hearts come from all over- the dirt roads of Montana, broke down towns of West Texas, and the wilds of Alaska. You’ll hear the influences of singer-songwriters and classic country icons like Merle Haggard, and Kris Jones has been compared to the likes of Guy Clark and Robert Earl Keen. While Kris Eli Jones belts out the vocals and backs with guitar, Lindy Jones harmonizes and thumps along on bass and even lays down some drumbeats, Maridon do-se-dos with Lindy singing along, playing bass and drumming, and Bob Banghart… bangs? naw, he fiddles!
See all y’all at the Honky Tonk Habit barn dance with a moonshine shack, country-style snacks served up by Cape Fox, dancing, and so much fun you’ll be yellin’ Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee HAW!
