Texas Gentlemen Announce UK Tour

Texas Gentlemen On Tour! Acclaimed quintet are making their UK debut in the coming weeks

If you haven’t heard the Texas Gentlemen yet, do so! And if you haven’t yet booked tickets for their UK dates at the end of January / February 2018…do that too!

The Lone Star-bred collective is an ever-evolving cast of characters based around the core quintet of Beau Bedford, Nik Lee, Daniel Creamer, Matt McDonald, and Ryan Ake. They take their cues from some of the most iconic acts of the past – the quicksilver brilliance of The Wrecking Crew, The Muscle Shoals Swampers, Booker T and The MG’s, and Bob Dylan’s one-time backers The Band are the most obvious examples.

So while the country influence is strong, the Texas Gentlemen are a lot more besides. Here at Country Music magazine we loved their TX Jelly debut album of 2017, writing how “This fluid Lone-star state collective have now developed a formidable reputation for their own shows.” And trust us, we’re not wrong. Their UK debut shows are selling fast.

Texas Gentlemen

Of that genre-straddling TX Jelly debut, recorded at Alabama’s legendary FAME studio, Beau Bedford says, “We set up our own version of rock’n’roll summer camp and invited our friends down to FAME studios. We figured at worst, we would have a great time as friends hanging out in one of the most historic studios in America.

There was so much mojo once we turned all of the gear on – sounds just started popping out of the speakers, and the songwriters couldn’t help but feed off the energy. TX Jelly is the fruition of years of kinship and a deep hunger by our collective group for American roots music.”

Here’s the superb single Pain to give you a taster.
