Songs You Can't Sing for Momma
Long a black market favorite on the tour busses of Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett, Pirates of the Mississippi, and Hank Snow, The Neverly Brothers are coming to a joint near you soon. Somewhat of a cross between the Texas Troubadours and the Rolling Stones, The Neverly Brothers are playing their own brand of classic country and rock, with some original tunes which have critics describing them as "Merle Haggard meets Redd Foxx". Coincidentally, the Neverlies are all legitimate sons of truck-stop floozies, discovering each other in the process of flunking diesel mechanic school in Oklahoma during the mid-80's. With dreams of being grease monkeys at the turnpike Union 76 up in smoke, they discovered the musical genius of Dave Dudley (Fatherly Neverly). After a move to Music City, a failed creosote cigar business and a series of canceled bookings at bluegrass festivals across the United States, The Neverly Brothers have finally come out of the grease pit. The most mechanicly-reclined Neverly, bassist Harry Vee, actually drove a diesel once. Multi-instrumentalisp Horace DeVries once appeared with Ralph Emery at the same bank (and most resembles Freddy Fender than any other Neverly). Tone Poke, on guitar, is best known for dropping acid with (or was it on?) Marty Robbins. Stan Moorehead, on fiddle, is the only Neverly to be jail-free since leaving school (except for 1989). Chubby Longfellow just recently completed a tour playing lap steel with Too Live Crew and is a former fashion consultant to Cosmo Kramer. Rounding out the group on the drum kit is Phil McGrowen, who has gaspirations of someday becoming a musician. The Neverly Brother provide entertainment for the whole family, but when the kids go to sleep, WATCH OUT!
