Wayne Hancock Performs Tonight at The Continental Club
Yes, there is a deeply-rooted respect for tradition in the music of Wayne Hancock. But this ain’t no retro show. The rich blend of all things country, blues and big band is Hancock’s very own “juke joint swing,” and don’t you forget it.
There’s something wonderful about an artist who has no need for convenient genres and doesn’t mince words: “I’m like a stab wound in the fabric of country music in Nashville. See that bloodstain slowly spreading? That’s me.”
“The Train” made his debut with the release of Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995. For more than 13 years, he’s been wowing fans and impressing his peers with his unwavering style, travelling from coast to coast and performing at clubs all over the place.
Tonight, after you’re done with dinner and you need to work off some of that turkey, head on down to the Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress, and catch Hancock’s show at 11:30 p.m. The fabulous fiddlin’ and swingin’ of Austin’s Shotgun Party starts the night out right at around 10 p.m., so get there a little early.
This is the real deal.
