About Skinny Molly
Skinny Molly was founded by guitarist/vocalist Mike Estes (formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot) and Nashville, TN studio drummer Kurt Pietro. Originally put together to do a one-off tour of Europe in 2004, Skinny Molly has, eleven years later, become one of the hardest working and popular rock bands out of the southern United States. Solidifying the current lineup in 2008, the band boasts guitarist Jay Johnson (formerly of Blackfoot/Rossington Band), and Grand Ole Opry stalwart bassist Luke Bradshaw. This lineup has toured relentlessly; their first jaunt found them crossing three continents in 30 days on the strength of their debut CD "No Good Deed". Constant gigging has established them as "The band from the South to see" across Europe as well as at home in the States
Originally formed in December 1998, J.B. Beverley and the Wayward Drifters have steadily made a name for themselves in the U.S. and around the world. A “retired” hobo, Beverley took his experiences from the road, the trains, and everyday American people he encounters, and molded those experiences into some of the most heartfelt, real-deal country music to see the light of day in a long time. With driving acoustic rhythm guitar, slamming upright bass slapping, amazing banjo rolls, and other blistering accompaniment, Beverley and his “high lonesome” voice have earned a solid reputation for their live shows.
Tonk creates original country music that is heavily influenced by the great masters of the late 60's to mid '70s such as Ray Price, Merle Haggard and Johnny Paycheck. Their album "Let's Keep It Dark" was released in November 2013 and the band is recording tracks for an upcoming release.
