The Mother Truckers Play Thursday at Antone’s
It’s pretty cool that The Mother Truckers break through musical genres. They bust out of them, really. Who needs genres anyway? They rock hard while playing country or the blues, and shake the room down to its very foundation at each and every one one of their live shows.
The core of this hard-rockin’ outfit is made up of Josh Zee on vocals and lead guitar, and Teal Collins on vocals, guitar, and ukelele, when the occasion calls for it. Zee has a history of rock ‘n’ roll in his blood, and Collins has heavy roots in jazz. When the two first met at an open mic night awhile back, something got their wheels clicking. They pooled each other’s talents together, and in 2002, the Truckers band was born.
The Mother Truckers are bringing the house down this Thursday night at Antone’s, 213 W. 5th St. Opening the show is a performance by Jonathan Tyler and The Northern Lights. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show starts at 9. Great stuff here. And, I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Teal, you are a goddess.
