Brawley's Barroom Ball w/ Brawley and Gethen Jenkins
A Tribute to The Bakersfield Sound (The songs of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Don Rich, Dwight Yoakam)
The Belly Up is transformed once again into a honky-tonk with Brawley’s Barroom Ball: "A Tribute to the Bakersfield Sound." Gethen Jenkins and Brawley combine to perform country hits by such artists as Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Wynn Stewart, Dwight Yoakam, and more, in addition to each band playing a set of their own songs.
"The working-class city of Bakersfield, California, gave birth to an exciting, raw-edged style of country music that enjoyed tremendous popularity in the 1960s and continues to resonate with musicians and fans today. Buck Owens and Merle Haggard were the most successful exponents of the Bakersfield Sound, with its piercing electric guitars, unsweetened barroom feel, and honest, down-to-earth songs...Bakersfield musicians created their own distinctive, influential sound-two thousand miles from country music's epicenter in Nashville.” —via Country Music Hall of Fame Museum, Nashville
