PUSHWATER / Press

“ABC News 13 Houston Texas Monday, June 06, 2016 10:31PM CROSBY, TX (KTRK) -- A little flooding over the weekend wasn't going to stop a party in Crosby. Parts of Baytown and Crosby were under water late last week from flooding, including the bar Bob N Jeans. Video from inside the club Saturday night shows patrons dancing in ankle-deep water to the band, appropriately enough called Pushwater. Before the show, Pushwater posted to Facebook, saying that the show will go on, flooding or not, while showing the inside and outside of the club. Pushwater Front man Jesse Duke says they'd already driven from Jewett to Crosby by time they found out the bar had taken on water. "By the time we got down there, I called the manager to ask how it was. She said it was flooded. I said we're gonna come take a look anyway. And when we got there, there were people dancing and playing pool and sitting at the bar drinking. That was at 6pm," Duke said. And the dancing didn't stop.”

“CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME REVIEW OF OUR NEW VIDEO! Sherryjane Cooke League City (Houston area,) Texas Quote · Feb 16 2014 9:31 Jerry and all,I ADORE the new song and the new video "In the Ground!" I've listened to some of your amazing songs before and am never disappointed! With this new one, I am in awe! It is THE most masterfully created blending of songwriting, perfect vocals and harmonies, background fiddle and and I love how the lyrics sneak up on you with each line and continuing scenes. The song, with its toe-tapping sound, fiddle and flair, catches you off guard while you shockingly realize you are being drawn deeper and deeper (symbolized by the stark forest of dead trees) into the raw, cold chill of death. You realize through the song's lyrics and vision of what he is carrying! It's the dramatic loss of love, emotion, sanity - and life. Figuratively and literally, the song's passion mirrors the intensity of the video and hypnotically takes us deep inside the mind”
