Brace yourself for Texas Tony and the Tornado Ramblers! A gang of seven breakneck outlaws from the
West Texas desert playing only the best whiskey soaked honky tonk music around. There's always
plenty of groove and a healthy dose of twang. So take a big swig, pass the bottle, and prepare to
get rowdy and move all night to the sweet, sweet sounds of the Tornado Ramblers.
Texas Tony and the Tornado Ramblers includes the group’s founder, spiritual leader, and namesake
Texas Tony himself on drums, Bobby Evans on vocals, Tommy "Gold" Nugget on lead guitar, Jonny
Fingers on acoustic guitar, Jorge Eldorado on Trumpet, Jesse “Double J” Jeffers on pedal steel,
and Dr. Buddy Lowend on bass guitar. They hail from the small West Texas town of Texola and have
become the most notable group to emerge from this mecca of Outlaw Country music. Some question
the actual existence of Texola, but if you look real hard at a map of West Texas, you might find
it between Odessa and Pecos. If you can't, get yourself a new map. Recently they were drawn to
the home state of their personal hero, Johnny Cash (not to mention a few outstanding warrants in
Texas). The boys packed up the tour bus and headed east to Tennessee. They finally landed in
Knoxville at the foot of the Smoky Mountains. The gang has setup their new home base and has been
delighting crowds in East Tennessee and the surroundings with their unique blend of hard rocking
honky tonk music and their exhilarating stage show.
Texas Tony and the Tornado Ramblers plays original music as well as covers from Waylon to Merle,
Led Zeppelin to ZZ Top, you know the classics. Their new single “Cannonball” has received
airplay on WUTK FM and is a fan favorite. Steve Wildsmith from The Daily in Times in Maryville,
TN called it “a swaggering blast of old-school-meets-new-country”.
