Barstool Romeos / Press

“Great honky tonk music is hard to come by — unless you happen across the debut album by Knoxville’s Barstool Romeos. The Romeos sound like they’ve been soaked in a barrel of classic country for 20 years and dried off with Elvis’ sweat towel. These guys understand that great country music has heart and soul and doesn’t get made by committee. The Romeos’ songs “Cheap Bourbon Whiskey,” “If I Only Had a Dollar,” “On Hooch,” “Whiskey Women & Pain” and “I’ll Get By” should make the members of Nashville’s hit factories hide their faces in shame that they didn’t create them instead of the half-hearted cute dreck they’re currently producing.”

“Pour yourself a stiff one – cheap bourbon, if you please – and prop your elbows on the bar while you take a listen to The Barstool Romeos. The Barstool Romeos – Mike McGill and Andy Pirkle on guitar, Eric Keeble on percussion, and Josh Sidman on bass – is a Knoxville, Tennessee, outfit that offers up its brand of countrified rock and roll straight with no chaser. These Knoxville honky tonk heroes are out and about sharing the sounds of their debut record, Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal.”

““The barstool Romeos are modern day honky-tonk outlaws with the charm of old time country troubadours. Prepare yourself for a rowdy good time!””

““When you’re sittin’ on a barstool drinkin’ a cold one, it's the music you long to hear. These guys can rock yer sox off & next thing ya know they're country as fried chicken (and finger lickin’ good too!)."”
