Smokey's Roundup this week: Barbes in the Slope & Sunny's in Red Hook
If you go to Sunny's most Wednesdays, you'll stumble in on Smokey's Roundup, a shifting group of awesome musicians playing old-fashioned country music. It's hard to describe what a thrill it is to see players like this--guys at the top of their game playing songs they love for the love of it--we usually sit at the bar with big dumb smiles on our faces...
Red Hook legend Bob Hoffnar is always there on pedal steel; Smokey Hormel plays guitar and sings...and you never know who else might be sitting in. The group's at Barbes tonight (Monday Dec. 18th) and at Sunny's Wednesday the 20th.
