As the self-proclaimed "Best Band Ever," the Boys Named Sue have yet to play for a crowd that they could not win over. While playing the music that folks like to hear, or "the Hits" as they like to call them, these beer swilling, Tuaca shooting ruffians have been known to melt a face or two in the crowd.
Originating from the EDT (East Dallas, Texas that is), the Boys Named Sue fuse the best of old country with contemporary styles (rock, hip hop, shock jock) and an infectious stage presence that just makes you want to get up and dance. Just don't forget to dip yer partner when you're done.
The Boys Named Sue is comprised of four of Big D's best...or at least best looking musicians. Wrought from such great bands as Slick 57, the Fabulous Harmonaires, Trainwreck (now disbanded) and Cowboys and Indians, these boys have become a musical force unto itself. They can be heard playing in honky-tonks across the greater Texas area (and are available for private parties too).
Sue-ah leads the band with vocals that remind the listener of ol' Hank Sr. himself and guitar solos that will make your head spin. Snakebite Sue keeps the beat fresh (yo!) and harmonizes in such a perfect way that you just can't help but sing along. Bobby Sue has been called the best fiddler north of the Trinity and South of the Red river. We don't know if thats true or not, but he certainly smiles a lot. Finally, theres Dub Sue who is best described in Haiku format:
Dub Sue plays the bass
A.K.A. the dub boss
A lady killer
So check them out at a venue near you. Grab a cold one, buy the band a round of Tuacas and enjoy the good times.
