The Dock Ellis Band brings country music back to the glory days. Like an archeological discovery of a lost honky tonk jukebox, these boys will satisfy audiences who miss that old-time twang. The material ranges from teary, harmony driven waltzes to raucous and rowdy roadhouse tunes with a steady train beat. Their covers will evoke memories from the heyday of The Grand Ole Opry and 70’s outlaw country, and their originals are always entertaining and provocatively humorous. The Dock Ellis Band has an irreverent stage presence and workhorse attitude. Their marathon three to four hour sets fly by with the crowd still wanting more when last call has been made and the lights have gone up.
