Texas Tony & The Tornado Ramblers

With our in-laws keeping the kiddos over the weekend, my wife and I were able to go out and see some live music for the first time in a long, long, while.  Our adventure took us to the Tin Roof in Knoxville, TN where we were able to see Texas Tony & The Tornado Ramblers.  First of all, let me tell you-these guys are a lot of fun! I cannot name another band that effortlessly blends such a superb mix of honky tonk, R&B, rock, country and the blues with a great dose of humor.

The Tornado Ramblers hit the stage complete with their 10 gallon hats and full western wear to rip through a whiskey-soaked set that included honky tonk renditions of: ZZ Top, Johnny Cash, The Allman Bros. Band and Bill Withers, just to name a few. 

A great time was certainly had by all and you definitely need to make plans to see these guys at the Bijou this weekend.
