Giant City Slickers
Alex Kirt - lead vocals and guitar - Dan Goett - lead guitar - Mark Stoffel - fiddle, electric mandolin, vocals - Blake Bramlett - upright bass - Jimmy Beers - drums
Western Swing, Gypsy, Old Country
Southern Illinois musicians Alex Kirt (Woodbox Gang), Mark Stoffel (Chris Jones and the Night Drivers), Dan Goett (Soul Glo, Woodbox Gang), and Nate Graham (Whistle Pigs) could no longer contain their passion for swingin’ hillbilly music, so they formed the heartland’s finest western swing band, the Giant City Slickers. With the addition of Jimmy Beers (Drums) and Blake Bramlett (bass) they venture into the world of Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell, Spade Cooley, and other icons of this much forgotten genre. Together they create a musical firework that beams you right back into the 1940s and 1950s.
