Country singer-songwriter & Guit-Steel master Wednesday, Feb 12 8pm $26 adv, $30 door “You don’t fnd stylists today like you did in the Ernest Tubb era. That’s what sets Junior aside from a lot of other artists. He’s got his own style. And his rapport with his fans, he draws a vast audience, from young college kids up to the older, traditional country music fans.” --David McCormick, owner, Ernest Tubb Record Shop, Nashville “Junior told me once that he was very impressed by Jimi Hendrix, by the way he was very wild, and yet he was very controlled. He knew where everything was going in a solo, and he (Junior), I think tries for the same effect, and I think he hits it virtually every time.” --Mitch Mitchell, drummer, The Jimi Hendrix Experience Though these two quotes attempt to explain his uniqueness and wide range musical capability, though not vague, the quotes are so dissimilar as to provoke a curious sense of mystery for a reader uninitiated with the phenomenon known as Junior Brown. Of course, to anyone who has seen Junior sing and play live, or heard any of his ten albums, will no doubt understand the connectedness in what the two quotes mean, and more often than not will have some quotable Junior observations to add of their own. What it all boils down to is this: with his unique voice, more unique songwriting craft, and even more unique double necked “Guit-Steel”, there has absolutely never been anyone like Junior Brown. Born 1952 in Cottonwood, AZ., Junior showed musical talent at an early age playing little melodies on the family piano before he could talk. Curiosity led him to an old guitar in his grandparents’ attic, thus setting the stage for a lifelong interest in the steel strings. After a series of high school dance bands, he hit the Country dance club circuit full time while still in his teens. This continued for decades all over the United States and many excursions abroad.
