Kevin Russell and Some Friends is a collection of many of the bay areas finest musicians. Like Duke Ellington, they believe theres only two kinds of music: good and bad. And they play the good kind(s). Specifically: western swing, classic country, honky-tonk and country jazz! In other words: Americana! Drawing from a wealth of American favorites like Bob Wills, Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Hank Thompson and more, they always manage to make covers their own and create music that will have you dancing or listening with great enthusiasm! This is music that recalls the unique country music stylings that came out of Bakersfield, the rough and tumble side of Nashvilles glory years and the Texas honky-tonks that merged big band swing with fiddle tunes and cowboy swagger! Their relaxed on-stage style will makes audiences feel right at home and as if the show is happening just for them.
