Verdi Club: Lone Star Retrobates at the Woodchopper’s Ball
January 15 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm
LONE STAR RETROBATES:
The Lonestar Retrobates are a boot-scootin’ wingtips-flyin’ dance band specializing in authentic West Coast Swing and influenced by West Coast Cowjazz, Rockabilly, Swing, Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, Barnyard Boogie Woogie, Roadhouse Swing, Western Swing, and Gypsy Jazz. Featuring trumpet, sax, twin fiddles, both standard and pedal steel guitars, drums and standup bass, rich 4- and 5-part vocal harmonies and even trick yodeling on demand, the Retrobates sashay from hot swing to honkytonk. In a word, FUN!
