Hillbilly Orchestra / Bio

Mongo Smith:
(Uses Shure wireless, plays DEAN guitars and wears
Dickies brand clothing)
Lead Vocals and the fattest of the hillbillies!
He sings like a bear with a thorn in his foot and
sweats like a sumo wrestler in a sauna...
but a warning, if you get to close he will give you a
big hug and a kiss!
Don't let his gigantic size fool you, he's a teddy bear.

Randy Blackwell plays various guitars ,played with Defcon a metal
band from the Dallas scene... .

Ray Blackwell . plays guitar he is the youngest of all the hillbilly,s and the best looking

Orion on the drums is a life long friend of Mongo's he wear,s dickey clothing........and likes all kinds of food..

Motown plays green string'd Ibanez basses to match his beard. He has taken on, AND WON, a Man vs. Food challenge.

Influences:
Rush, Pantera, Led Zepplin, ZZ-Top, Motorhead and many others
Sounds Like:
.. ZZ-Top on steroids and force fed fried food.
Throw in a slight metal and a bluegrass thing, and there ya go!
Imagine Lynard Skynard and Rage Against the Machine having kids together.
