Biography: The Honky Tonk Experience
Formed in the spring of 2003, The HONKY TONK EXPERIENCE brings country classics to life with a sizzling edge, while also performing songs of current artists whose music is true to what country music used to be and still should be. From Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings to Dwight Yoakam and Dale Watson. From Merle Haggard and Buck Owens to BR5-49 and The Derailers. A HONKY TONK EXPERIENCE show brings young and old together on the dance floor.
The HONKY TONK “EXPERIENCE” is comprised of five of Richmond, Virginia’s most respected musicians. Each member has forged his own reputation by playing in a variety of other bands over the past 20 years. Brad Spivey (George Winn’s Bluegrass Partners) provide the classic country lead vocals. Mike Lucas (Reverb Rockets, Good Humor Band) is well known for his distinctive Tele picking. Mark Watts (Boneshakers, The Fredds, Reverb Rockets) has spent 20+ years drumming up and down the East Coast. Randy Cook (Legacy, Hanover Better Boys) provides the “cryin” steel guitar and harmony vocals. Clark Ball (Big Posse, Reverb Rockets), bassist, provides the solid foundation for the HONKY TONK EXPERIENCE to build its sound upon.
If you want the watered down pop that passes for country on modern radio, then this is not your band. If, however, you want it real and performed with passion and enthusiasm, then the HONKY TONK EXPERIENCE brand of country music is for you.
