FestivaLink.net presents Wayne Hancock Swing Time
You can regularly find Wayne Hancock at home at Austin’s Continental Club. Over two nights in March 2003, he worked with Lloyd Maines to produce the archetypal live Hancock show, culling 13 tunes from over three hours of swing.
Wayne "The Train" Hancock is the world’s finest purveyor of an enticing blend of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band we like to call Juke Joint Swing. There. We’ve said it. And we dare you to prove us wrong.
Wayne makes music fit for any road house anywhere. With his unmistakable voice, The Train’s reckless honky-tonk can move the dead. If you see him live (and he is ALWAYS touring), you’ll surely work up some sweat stains on that snazzy Rayon shirt you’re wearing.
Wayne's disdain for the slick new swill that passes for country is well known: "Man, I'm like a stab wound in the fabric of country music in Nashville. See that bloodstain slowly spreading? That's me." ~Bloodshot Records
"A rare breed of traditionalist, one who imbues his retro obsessions with such high energy and passions that his songs never feel like the museum pieces he's trying desperately to preserve." ~AllMusic.com
