A great place in a great old building downtown....where all things are starting to happen. Also, a great sound man, Ryan, working the sound for us. You can eat, drink, dance, listen....or all four!!
The Trip is really a cool local bar in Santa Monica. It's just been renovated and has guitars hanging on the walls and a great sound man running the boards.

“I love the way this album starts with "Momma Wish I'd Listened to You." Gene Butler sings some Concrete Country songs like the intro track then turns on that “in your face country charm” on "Cold, Cold, Cold Woman." Music and songs like this are next-door neighbors to the blues. I find myself grinning from ear to ear when I listen to this "great" CD. Some fine musicians back Butler on every track on this album - fine fiddle players like Doug Atwell and Brantley Kearns. Gurf Morlix on guitar(he also plays the bass and provides vocals) Danny Dugmore on steel guitar. Mike Bannister on drums and Lucinda Williams (recognize that name?) add some vocal parts. I am not a big country fan, but after listening to this CD it brings out the latent cowboy in me. ”
