THE BIG GUN SHOW
Imagine a song swap in the basement of Villa Nellcôte among outlaws Haggard & Waylon, sided by modern day honky tonker Charlie Robison. Also in the circle are members of Jet, Lucero and The Eagles. Graham Parsons demonstrates country stylings to Keith as Ray Wylie Hubbard makes Jagger and Freddie King laugh while they wail in unison like old, drunken friends.
It’s a sound that Alan Harrison at the Rocking Magpie describes as, “Crashing
guitars and a singer that sounds like he’s been living on cigarettes, beer and
French Kisses since leaving the crib.” Ear Buzz says, “Gunter's voice brings on
the smoky roadhouse feel in spades.” A&R Factory states, “The Big Gun Show
are more than just an assimilation of nostalgic sound, they’ve mixed their
penchant with the iconic with their eagerness to swim in the contemporary
tides of sound to create truly spectacular Country Rock.” Think Rolling Stones,
Steve Earle and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
THE BAND DESCRIPTION:
The Big Gun Show is a local Austin band that plays music heavily influenced
by what Gunter call Keith Richards’ “Golden Era.” He defines it as the period
from 69 to 73 when Mick Taylor was playing slide and Parsons was exuding
his sway on Keith. It’s rock n roll with a honky tonk Americana twist.
They play venues such as the Saxon Pub, Continental Club, Stubbs, etc. since 2010. They also have a monthly happy hour residency at The Little Longhorn Saloon on the first Friday of every month. Being a songwriting fanatic, Gunter uses these happy hours to showcase new up and coming local songwriters. WHAT’S MISSING? Texas Radio Live and Sound of our Town.
THE DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW ALBUM TITLED SHAKEN NOT STIRRED
Have you ever been out on the town and felt and had a buzz fueled seducer? Maybe you were just sexy and kick ass? Think James Bond. Perhaps you were just sick and tired of being a victim of love. We’ve all had a life dream that we want to chase, right? These are the life experience topics and musical gems that consumed Gunter as he wrote the 5-song concept EP titled SHAKEN NOT STIRRED
