He has also been seen many times on RFD channel as a featured performer on “Midwest Country”. Two of his songs, performed by the “Honkytonk Renovators”, are being played on Texas radio on “Big G’s Texas Road Show” at KOOK 93.5 in Junction, Texas.
These guys are more than just a good dance band. They are an act with a direction that is nothing if not unique. One of the founders of the group is Jack Pearman, one of the best Bass players you will ever have a chance to hear. He uses an upright “Doghouse” Bass fiddle instead of the standard electric, and solidifies the foundation for every tune they play.
Their Drummer is Steve Graham, another founder of the ensemble. He is also a great vocalist that stands as he plays only a kick drum and snare and that’s all he needs to keep this band “Rock-in”.
Their electric Guitar player, Michael Johnson is Texas born and Arkansas raised. Using the standard tools of the trade, he puts the twang in their authentic honkytonk music.
