Bill Kirchen“Bill Kirchen rules, it’s just that simple,” says the Austin-American Statesman. “His no-nonsense guitar attack, powered by great, booming, bottom-heavy licks still covered with axle grease, is undoubtedly the real thing, scattering scorching guitar runs in all directions. It’s all immediate, in your face, and more than a little dangerous.” That’s why Guitar Player Magazine dubbed Bill the Titan of the Telecaster – the man is a consummate showman who uses his guitar mastery to make music that blends country, Texas swing, and rock and roll in a honky-tonk blast of outlaw energy and pure fun.

He started off in his college days in Ann Arbor with a “psycho-folk-rock” group that brought together some of the musicians who for his next band, Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, which set up camp in California in 1969 and altered the musical landscape forever, with classics like “Hot Rod Lincoln” and “Down to Seeds and Stems Again Blues.” Bill went on to join forces with Nick Lowe for a decade, formed the band Too Much Fun that rocked the DC area for several years, and recently moved to Austin. He’s put together a great band for tonight’s show, with Jack O’Dell on drums and vocals, Maurice Cridlin on bass, and the maestro of Marin County, Austin de Lone, on piano and vocals. Tonight, he and the band will be celebrating the release of a brand spankin’ new album, Seeds and Stems. “There are Masters among us,” Outlaw Magazine says in its review, “effortless, consistent Masters that use music to bring joy and shake up your insides in the best possible way. Kirchen’s at the top of that list.”
