ROAD TRIP!!!

Yep, this is the weekend we REALLY get out of town!!! Friday night, we’re in Durham, NC at The Blue Note Grill, start time is 9pm. We’ll be playing plenty of our own tunes, including some new tunes from our next CD “Mulligan Stew”.

Then Saturday, we keep on truckin’ up to Colonial Beach, Virginia for the Colonial Beach Rock’n’Blues Festival, opening for none other than Johnny Winter!!! We should be hitting the stage @ 6pm… so if you’re up in the Carolinas, Virginia, or DC, come on out and support LIVE music!!!

Now, this is a NICE writeup!!!

“No matter when you see them, it will be a great show. Franc Robert & The Boxcar Tourists has a cool, down-n-dirty, groovy-yet-swampy feel to their style that sometimes eludes other blues acts. I watched their set at the Chasco Fiesta this past March, and the audience was captivated the entire time. Go check them out; you won’t regret it!”

Now those are the kind of words an artist wants to hear!!!! To read the full article, click here

A REALLY cool review!!!

Just came across this today, such a nice review!!!! Always good to hear good things said about you!!!

Franc Robert’s stripped down blues stunner ‘Three Forks and Poison’ is the latest add to the Big Med Playlist for The Big One. Robert Johnson allegedly met his toxic end at the Three Forks Mercantile Store and Franc Robert crafts a great story about it in this amazing solo track. It’s a menacing piece in its steadfast pace and lyrics that take the listener out to a quiet end. This tune is just about perfect.
