Honky-Tonk Jump: The Texas Swing Music of Bob Wills

Jul 23 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Dinner and cocktail seating and service begins 90 minutes before showtimes.

Jazz With a Cowboy Hat

Honky-Tonk Jump plays swingin’ Texas dance hall music in the tradition of Bob Wills, Milton Brown, Ernest Tubb and Spade Cooley with a sprinkling of Hank Williams and other early honky-tonk legends. This band rustles up a rhythm roundup with accordion, twin fiddles, guitar, pedal steel, mandolin, bass, drums and vocals. Their music features signature twin and triple leads on accordion, fiddle, pedal steel and guitar with soulful vocals, all backed by a hard-swingin’ rhythm section. This band has fun and it’s contagious!

Dan Newton performed many times on A Prairie Home Companion and played Western swing with various bands since the 1980s. He serves triple duty as the front man, accordionist and lead vocalist.

“The crowd of over 600 were roaring their approval beginning the moment they heard the first twang from the stage. Honky-Tonk Jump played old favorites and new tunes with an ease that comes from the many years they’ve all played professionally.” –MIssissippi Music
