CANCELLED: Original Famous Twang Sundays: Live Country Music | Potrero Hill
Sunday, May 3rd Original Famous Twang Sundays welcomes Maurice Tani – 77 El Deora, Grant Langston and Friends to Thee Parkside. Maurice Tani formed 77 El Deora in 2004, the band has honed its sound through diet, exercise and constant live shows, amassing a loyal following of discriminating roots music aficionados and other social misfits.
With one foot in the deep country music traditions of North Alabama and another in the telecaster twang of California roots and Americana, Grant Langston is an artist that defies the typical toe tag of modern music. Born the textile town of Gadsden, AL Grant was raised singing and playing in the church. He spent his adolescence playing bass for the King James Version gospel quartet, and helped pay his way through Auburn University touring the dive bars of Alabama and Georgia with a rock band.
After a move to Los Angeles Grant Langston began writing and playing the roots music that Nashville didn’t want — honky tonk and full of attitude. 5 albums followed Road Side Service (2004), Koreatown (2006), Live in Bakersfield (2007), Stand Up Man (2009), and Working Until I Die (2011). Countless tours of the US and Europe opening for Dale Watson, Band of Heathens, Wayne “The Train Hancock”, Ben Harper, and I See Hawks in LA. A multitude of placements in TV and Film, most notably HBO’s hit series True Blood, round out the resume.
