Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys

Ruta Maya Coffee House, Austin, TX
Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys??!! This is no gimmick. These guys are the real deal; this THC soaked music is smokin'! If you dig classic country like Johnny Cash, you'll love these boys. I'm still doing a musical double-take that it's not Wayne Hancock who's singing. Speaking of 'The Train,' his bass player Shawn Supra is one of the Resin Valley Boys along with Hank III's steel guitar player Dan Johnson. I predict that these boys will someday take their rightful place along side other Texan greats like Junior Brown, Wayne Hancock, Asleep At The Wheel, etc. Forget about Toby Keith and corporate county; this is real, gritty, twangy country and western. If trippy THC soaked old-time country sounds like your bag, then you've lived your life long enough without this great band. Trying great new music like this is what DIME is all about!
The quality on this Ruta Maya Coffee House show couldn't be much better -it sounds excellent (with the exception of some very minor distortion). While it's an audience recording, it sounds like a soundboard. The balance has a perfect mix of vocals, steel guitar and fiddle. This is a must for steel guitar lovers since the instrument comes through so clearly in the mix. Photos are included in the download. If you're new to Sean Reefer, this is where you start!
