About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: April 20, 2009
  • Artist / Band: Wayne Hancock
  • Hosting Show: Back Country
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

Wayne "the Train" Hancock's self-described "juke joint swing" inspires audiences to yee-haw, whistle, clap -- and above all dance. Hancock and his band harness twangy vocals, stand up bass and steel guitar for a high-spirited ride.

Like an ice cold soda on a hot day, Hancock offers the real thing-- a stripped down, enthusiastic and refreshing melange of country and roots genres. His new release, Viper of Melody, features tunes that pull from the blues, swing, and honky tonk traditions. "Freight Train Boogie" rollicks on jazz while "Dog House Blues" howls rockabilly. "Working on Working" captures a contemporary down-but-not-yet-out struggle as Hancock laments, "if I can't find work, how am i gonna pay my dues?" Hancock and his fine Austin-based band played on April 19, 2009 at Off Broadway as part of their new release tour.
