Honky Tonk Confidential




Style: Authentic country, honky tonk and western swing.
Formed: 1997
Stomping grounds : Washington, D.C.

Honky Tonk Confidential plays authentic honky tonk and western swing from the 40s, 50s and 60s. The band is known for its soaring three-part harmony, Mike Woods' searing lead guitar and a hot pedal steel. Besides playing songs by such artists as Ray Price, Faron Young, Patsy Cline and Bob Wills, HTC has some very clever originals, such as "Honky Tonk 101" and "Working on my Barroom Tan." A CD on Muddypaws records is scheduled to be released in the spring of 1998.

Geff King has his own Web page, where you can get info about his old band, the New Early Sunrise Band, and his tech job, the inspiration for his very funny "High Tech Redneck" (not the George Jones song) recorded by NESB.
