The Casey Donahew Band and the Josh Abbott Band made a return trip to NYC on September 9th (both were in the city this past February for the Texas Tailgate and Four on the Floor respectively) to play a show at the Bowery Ballroom.
Casey and his band were up first performing a solid hour's worth of tunes that had everyone in the crowd singing along. From his latest single "Lovin' Out of Control" to "Whiskey Baby," "Twelve Gauge," and "Go To Hell" Casey and his talented band brought a good time. Only drawback: their set was too short.
Apparently, there are a lot of displaced Texans in the NYC area because when Josh asked the crowd if there were any Texans there that night, he was met with hoots and hollers from the TX t-shirt wearing, two stepping, here for a good time crowd. Josh and his band, again an incredibly talented group, performed many of their hits from "My Texas" to "Flatland Farmer" as well as songs from their new EP Tuesday Night including "Tuesday Night," "Hangin' Around" and a song that Josh said was the sequel to "She Will Be Free," a song titled "She Don't Break."
Both of these bands always put on terrific, energetic, engaging and fun live shows. They can bring Texas to NYC anytime.
Tuesday Night will be released on September 23rd

Apologies for not having any photos of CDB, as I could not get a good photo of them from the floor of the venue during their set.
