BOB WAYNE quit school at an early age and ended up becoming a roadie for Hank Williams III. It was there that he started writing some Outlaw Country songs of his own. While on the road, Hank and his band noticed that Bob’s songs weren’t too bad, not too bad at all. Soon after, Andy Gibson (Hank’s steel guitar player) and Joe Buck (Hank’s upright bass player) invited Bob to Nashville to record his debut release, Blood To Dust. It wasn’t long after Blood To Dust was recorded that Hank III asked Bob to open up for him as main support for a U.S. Tour. Since then Bob has been touring the world almost non-stop only taking short breaks to record new music from time to time, before returning to the place he calls home, the open road.
T.JUNIOR: Hailing from Central Alabama, T. Junior is a professional songwriter & solo performer, in addition to being the front-man for the Montgomery, Alabama-based Honky Tonk Hustlas. His music and lyrics incorporate eclectic influences like country, blues, punk, metal & bluegrass. Armed only with an acoustic guitar & a microphone, T. Junior is able to tap into common emotions and channel them into his music in a way that regular people can relate to with material ranging from rowdy, upbeat hellraisers to deeply introspective songs about life & death. T. Junior started his professional musical career in 1996 at the age of 17 as the drummer for the Southeastern regional act, Armchair General. A few years later, he joined the Auburn, Alabama-based regional act, If Then Else, which eventually evolved into the heavy-blues power trio, Homebrew. After a long, hard run with Homebrew, T. Junior moved out from behind the drumset to begin playing solo shows on acoustic guitar. He started out performing at open-mics & house parties before joining the Honky Tonk Hustlas in 2007, where he honed his skills as a songwriter and performer. In 2009, he began performing frequently as a solo acoustic act, playing ever increasing amounts of solo shows. In short, T. Junior has served multiple roles in several bands, all while holding true to his musical vision & uncompromising his style. After recording several demos & EPs with his previous bands, T. Junior released two full-length Honky Tonk Hustlas albums (2008 & 2011), both of which received worldwide critical acclaim. In 2012 T. Junior released his first solo EP, Man in Gray, which has also been well-received in the global underground country community. Being an original songwriter, T. Junior primarily performs his own material, but he also pays tribute to some of the legends. With hundreds of shows under his belt at venues all over the Southern, Eastern & Midwestern USA, he has plenty of touring experience and is able to perform shows up to 4 hours long. He has played all kinds of venues & private events over the years, including festivals, bars, nightclubs, honky-tonks, dives, weddings, parties, racetracks & more.
NICK BONE & the BIG SCENE: Nick Bone, frontman for Southern California’s notorious cowpunk outfit The Screamin YeeHaws has reunited with original YeeHaws bassist Jimmy Dean to form The Big Scene. Remaining friends and writing partners since Jimmy’s departure from the band, it was simply TIME. Nick and Jimmy’s Southern roots combined with the SoCal/Chicano flavoring of lead guitarist Ritchie Orduno, Jr. and drummer Martin Robles have created a unique blend of honkytonk rocknroll while maintaining a gritty punk edge. Bassist and producer Dirty Steve provides the pocket groove that holds the thing together. The fellas debut performance was Mar 7th, 2012 while opening for Joe Buck Yourself. They burned the joint accordingly.
