“As Quoted in The New York Times from Ethel's Old Corral "A band plays every Sunday, and the afternoon I was there it was Nightlife, fronted by Justin and Wendy McWilliams. Justin was born in Salt Lake City, where his parents played in their own band, and “everything they did was Bakersfield.” “I was raised with this stuff,” he said during a break between sets. Wendy, his wife, has one of those voices you don’t quite believe is real — part Lucinda Williams, part June Carter — especially when you come upon it in as unheralded a place as this. She serenades couples who giddily take to the dance floor, three minutes to show off their rhinestone-studded jeans and escape the workaday blandness of their other lives."
