Vermont's House Band, The Starline Rhythm Boys!
Sat, Feb 24 at 9pm
Formed in 1998 (now celebrating 20 years together!) by 3 professional musicians with a combined experience of over 100 years in various bands (including Danny Coane with The Throbulators, Al Lemery with Badge and Billy Bratcher’s big-time one year stint in 1997 with Wayne "The Train" Hancock), The Starline Rhythm Boys are a full time, actively booked drummer-less "Tennessee Trio", consisting of Danny Coane ("Little Danny C") on acoustic rhythm guitar, “Big” Al Lemery on electric lead guitar and Billy (“Slappin’ Billy B”) Bratcher on acoustic upright "slap" bass, in the style of Elvis', Cash's and Perkins' early bands. The Boys perform vintage country, honky-tonk and rockabilly music along with very tight and powerful country harmony duet vocals. Their repertoire consists of many superb originals, mainly written by Bratcher, as well as great covers of both classic and obscure numbers. One of Vermont’s most popular and hardest working bands, at over 150 gigs a year just in-state, The Starline Rhythm Boys are a unique original group with outstanding, real-deal sound, style, energy, stage presence and appearance. They have appeared at almost every type of venue, as well as on radio and TV, and are both a listening and highly danceable group who appeal to a very wide age range.
