Deke Dickerson’s TwangaPalooza
Deke Dickerson says, “I’ll be bringing the HONKY TONK ALL-STARS to Campus JAX Newport Beach for a night of classic country music!
We brought this band to Bakersfield a couple months ago with our pals The Soda Crackers and had a blast.
The Honky-Tonk All Stars are myself, Brent Harding on bass (Social Distortion, the Lucky Stars), “Boo” Bernstein on pedal steel guitar (Freddy Fender, Chris Shiflett, heck–he was the guy who introduced Dwight Yoakam to Pete Anderson back in the day!) and Billy B Horton on drums (Wanda Jackson, many others).
We’ll have guests like Brian Lonbeck sitting in with us, and this promises to be a great night of REAL country music–if you like that sort of thing! (No Pop Country or Bro Country will be played!)”
The Soda Crackers are steeped in traditional country music & Western Swing. Along with originals, this band performs classics from Jimmy Rodgers to George Strait. Plenty of dance-worthy tunes! The Soda Crackers are known for combining the o’ twang from honky-tonk bands from years gone by with that classic Western Swing big sound… Just their way to pay homage to the vintage melodies once common in those packed Texas dance halls and Central California beer joints.
Come on down, doors at 4 pm for dancing to DJ, and Soda Crackers commence at 5, then Deke goes on about 6 to 8 pm.
