Bill Kirchen's Honky Tonk Holiday Show
Forget the "Nutcracker" and "Handel's Messiah." For a real taste of seasonal cheer, nothing says joy to the world like Bill Kirchen singing "Daddy's Drinkin' Up Our Christmas." Bill Kirchen and his Hounds of the Bakersfield make a stop on their annual Honky Tonk Holiday Tour at the Hangar on the Hudson in Troy at 8 pm on Saturday December 7.  Featured is a sleigh-full of rarely heard holiday numbers from the blues, rock 'n' roll and honky tonk bags: "Silent Surfin' Night," "Truckin' Trees for Christmas," "Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy" and many more. But be ye not afraid, there'll be so much more than holiday songs of questionable taste; you can count on a truckload of dieselbilly classics to take the edge off the holiday fuss.
Guitar Player Magazine dubbed Bill Kirchen the Titan of the Telecaster. Rolling Stone said hes an American treasure and one of our best. No matter what you call him, Kirchen is a founding father of the Americana movement, now at the peak of his impressive career.
Kirchen was originally known as co-founder and lead guitarist of Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, one of the first and only rock-n-roll bands to infuse their honky-tonk sound with pure, blood-and-guts country roots and western swing. It was Kirchens scorching guitar licks that helped define their sound and drove their hit, Hot Rod Lincoln, into the Top Ten in 1972, a song that eventually took on a post-Cody life of its own. Today, Kirchens extended version of Hot Rod Lincoln is his universally loved signature masterpiece, a pumped-up joyride through the last 60 years of guitar-god history, described as epic by Rolling Stone.
In 2001, Kirchen received a Grammy nomination for his instrumental Poultry in Motion. The following year he was inducted into the Washington Area Music Association Hall of Fame, neatly sandwiched between John Phillip Sousa and Dave Grohl. Kirchen has recorded and/or played guitar live with a who's who of Americana and Roots Rock 'N' Roll, among them Gene Vincent, Link Wray, Bo Diddley, Hazel Dickens, Doug Sahm, Hoyt Axton, Emmylou Harris, Maria Muldaur, Dan Hicks, and Nick Lowe. Bill is pretty sure that he is the only person to have, in a single year, stood on stage and played with both Ralph Stanley and Elvis Costello.
Bill Kirchen is currently touring with his all-star, all-Texas band, The Hounds of the Bakersfield: Rick Richards on drums and David Carroll on stand-up bass. Richards has made records and toured with Ray Wylie Hubbard, among many others. This brought him to the attention of Ringo Starr, whose recommendation led to the last three stadium tours drumming with Joe Walsh. David Carroll has played bass with a who's who of Austin artists, including stints with Billy Joe Shaver and Jerry Jeff Walker and a run with Ray Price.
Saturday's show promises to be a night of telecaster mastery you wont want to miss; let joy be unrefined!
