Rockabilly honky-tonk twang take over The Palms

From page A9 | May 14, 2014 |

The Bay Area-based band Red Meat will showcase its rockabilly, country, western swing and gospel-style harmonies in a concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. Yolo County band The Bottom Dwellers will open the show.

Red Meat’s band members are influenced by their Midwestern and Ozark upbringings and have added some honky-tonk, rock ‘n’ roll and San Francisco style. Red Meat combines all these influences into a honky-tonk twang with a touch of post-punk, guided by rock ‘n’ roll sensibility.

Scott Young, the band’s primary songwriter and musical arranger, has penned songs such as “Honky-Tonk Habit” that would have been right at home in Bakersfield’s country heyday to the just slightly tongue-in-cheek “Girl With The Biggest Hair” to the all-out rollicking fun of “12 Inch 3 Speed Oscillating Fan.”

Since forming in San Francisco’s Mission District in 1993, Red Meat has gone from an unknown bar band to being hailed as California’s top honky-tonk band. They have released five albums (three produced by Grammy-winning roots-rock icon Dave Alvin), served as rockabilly legend and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Wanda Jackson’s touring band, and received rave reviews.

Red Meat is Smelley Kelley (vocals, audacious bantam-rooster stage presence), Jill Olson (vocals, bass), Young (vocals, acoustic guitar, fiddle, trombone), Les James (drums, percussion, vocals) and Michael Montalto (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, accordion, piano).

Show openers The Bottom Dwellers — who are gearing up to release their third album — are Ivan Sohrakoff (vocals, guitar), Robbie Thayer (vocals, guitar), Chris Eynon (drums) and Mark Eagleton (double bass).

Tickets are $15 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if the show is not sold out.
