Festival Date/Time/Location: Saturday, April 13 / 10:30PM / Andy’s Bar
Convoy and the Cattlemen arose from the city of Arlington, TX, in the heat of the summer of 2010. The six member ensemble, influenced largely by the energy of rock and roll, professional wrestling, pork tacos, and lots and lots of beer, consists of fearless leader and acoustic guitarist, Convoy Cabriolet, a smokin’ fast lead guitarist, Toker Ace, a head-bangin’ steel guitarist, Hawk Hawglund, a crazy little fiddler, Tandy Hyde, a bona-fide-insane bass fiddler, Slappin’ Jimmy, and an out-of-control drummer, Little Big Lech. Together this team of comrades has taken the country-western and punk scene by storm with their one-of-a-kind, highly energetic performance. Convoy and the Cattlemen will be pressing their first set of original tunes to vinyl in the spring of 2013, long after rummaging up one of the best, biggest, and diverse groups of loyal fans in North Texas. Convoy and the Cattlemen have warmed up crowds for the likes of Junior Brown, Nick 13, Eleven Hundred Springs, Two Tons of Steel, and the Whiskey Folk Ramblers and churned up madness of their own doing, on some of the best stages Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas have to offer. You better believe country-western will never be the same. YEE-HAW!!!
