- Event Details
As a living lightning rod for the blues, Billy Joe Shaver is one rough 'n' rowdy Texan who's experienced more than enough joy and pain in his sixty-three years to ever have to go begging for material. Like Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, and Jimmie Rodgers, Billy Joe has lived the songs he sings—when it's about love, he's embraced it; when it's about grief, he's writhed in it; and when it's about screwing-up, well, Lord knows he's done it. When Shaver kicks his to-the-bone tales back our way, they smack of irrefutable truth—a truth that's delivered with simple, poetic grace.
Straight up roadhouse-style country delivered in a blistering and immediate package. If Jason and the Scorchers started digging on Bakersfield, or if you shot Jesse Dayton full of amphetamine, you might have your jumping off point for describing these guys. The Duqaines are an electric live band.
