The Hey-Nows! will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at RootStock, 22 Main St. in downtown Winters.
The Hey-Nows! are an acoustic duo that merges a power pop attitude with an Americana sensibility to create an engaging style of music that it calls “popabilly.” The duo plays a combination of originals and cover tunes, mixing obscure gems by the likes of Big Star, The Old ‘97s, and The Band with well-known classics from Joe Jackson, Counting Crows and The Beatles.
Formed in Yolo County in early 2011, The Hey-Nows! feature Lee Milhous on six- and 12-string guitars and Roger Trott on mandolin and guitar, sharing lead vocal responsibilities.
Milhous and Trott are both veterans of the Northern California rock music scene, having recorded and played in bands from Sacramento to Redding. Since its formation, the duo has been busy playing coffeehouses, fundraisers and other venues and events in the Sacramento region.
