Saturday, Feb. 14 –
It wasn’t until grad school at Texas Tech, and specifically a night singing along to the Randy Rogers Band, that Josh Abbott thought about writing and playing music for a career. It was only a few years earlier that Abbott had picked up a guitar for his own amusement. That was in 2004. Today, the Josh Abbott Band has earned its spot on stage and in fans’ hearts; Abbott recalls early on in the band’s career giving away tickets, CDs, T-shirts and even shots to win over his crowds. When those freebies dwindled, great music remained, and the Josh Abbott Band’s fan following continued to grow. Some of the band’s popular tracks include “Touch,” “Road Trippin’’ and the new release, “Hangin’ Around.” Its catchy tune is sure to get stuck in your head. The Josh Abbott Band will be stopping at Tulsa’s Cain’s Ballroom on Saturday, Feb. 14 and hopes you’ll spend the night hangin’ around. The show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.cainsballroom.com.
