Two Tons of Steel & The Derailers w/ Scooter Brown Band
October 12, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 1:00 am
TWO TONS OF STEEL
If there’s one thing Texans love, it’s a good party. But if you ask self-respecting Lone Star carousers what turns a bash into a blast, they won’t say beer or barbecue. They know it all comes down to the music. And there’s one band that can rouse revelers like no other: Two Tons of Steel.
It was their mutual love for the music of legendary country artist Buck Owens that originally brought The Derailers together back in the ’90s, and with the release of their eighth album, Under the Influence of Buck, the honky-tonkin’ boys from Austin bring their music all the way back to the source with a rollicking and heartfelt tribute to the timeless music of Buck Owens.
SCOOTER BROWN BAND
Scott Brown knows a thing or two about stressful situations. The young frontman of country act Scooter Brown is an Iraq war veteran–having completed one tour of combat duty as a U.S. Marine. When faced with the daunting decision to either reenlist or pursue music, Brown chose to trade in his rifle for a guitar and put together a band with some of the best musicians Texas has to offer. The band insists that its brand, songwriting and business decision making are all a democracy, not a dictatorship. Each of the four members—Scott, drummer Matt Bledsoe, lead guitarist Chris Loring, and bassist Craig Charles act as a pillar, shouldering an equal amount of responsibility and creativity. “We all collaborate and add our own flavor,” says Bledsoe. “We’re already living our dream,” says the band. We’ll drink to that!
