“Modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks… soulful lyrics paired with a beat you can dance to.”  —Rolling Stone, “10 New Artists You Need to Know 2014”

Imagine Lyle Lovett and Chris Isaak paying tribute to classic American rock n’ roll from Elvis, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison.”  The Boston Herald

This Boston band has been making a mark on the global music scene with its sizzling blend of rock ‘n’ roll and classic country. Along the way the group has released five critically acclaimed albums and has earned awards in the U.S. and abroad.

The innovative foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) find their inspiration from early ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

Half of the show is a Hank Williams tribute with the other half covering some of the band’s favorite original songs – all performed with style and musicianship from Ward Hayden and the boys.
