Hosted by Holston River Brewing Company, Saturday June 17 at 8:00
We’re in for a treat, Tri Cities. The entertainer extraordinaire, Unknown Hinson, is bringing his incredible music and off the wall showmanship to the Brewery this weekend.
You have to be intrigued by a guy who describes himself as 400-year-old hillbilly vampire playing magical searing guitar riffs and funny as hell lyrics with a tight as a tick band with perfect pitch. This is definitely eclectic! He describes his genre as psychobilly meets surf, country, classic rock and Universal Horror Monsters. Yep, we’re in for a wild ride on Saturday.
Band members include their namesake Unknown Hinson on lead guitar, Jimmy Church – pedal steel, Tuff Blanton – bass guitar and Rick Cutshaw – percussion. These guys combine to produce a truly unique sound, their own take on popular music. How many bands attribute their influences to such a diverse group as Faron Young, Chet Atkins, Perry Como, Jackie Gleason, Beach Boys, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Sons of the Pioneers, Les Paul, Django Reinhardt, Dick Dale, and The Who? Holy mackerel!
Interestingly enough, Mr. Hinson is the voice of Early Cuyler on Squidbillies, the Cartoon Network show. Is there anything he can’t do? I don’t think so, but we all get to find out Saturday night. Don’t miss out – head for the Brewery and get ready to be entertained.
