ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 18 Wheelers like to sing songs about trucks.
As a matter of fact, they're probobly the only musical group in the state of Florida who play "truck driving music".

Blending elements of roots rock, honky tonk country, western swing, rockabilly, and bluegrass, The 18 Wheelers keep it upbeat and dancable.
They're not afraid to do the occaisional "cry in your beer" song either.

Boasting three vocalists who sing lead, this Miami Florida based four piece band has been entertaining audiences with their combination of humor, good grooves and three part harmonies.
Twanging guitar, slapping doghouse bass, and pounding drums are the signature of the band.

Whether they're driving the train on a Johnny Cash number, rocking out on an Elvis tune, or singing an old classic by Buck Owens or Gram Parsons, the band seamlessly blends a deep catalog of covers with their own original songs.

All the topics of the genre are covered - driving a big rig across the country, losing your girl, getting drunk, going to jail, and disappointing your mama.

The group is no latecomer to the "alt-country" bandwagon, perfecting their own particular brand of American roots music in front of the nightclub scene and festival crowds for the past seven years.

Their style is generally a bit too cheerful to bear any close comparison to the average retro country or rock act, yet the faithfullness this band has to the old American classics is undeniable.
You won't find them playing anything that sounds like it's been recorded in the past 30 years.

All this notwithstanding, The 18 Wheelers sound is something that's best appreciated in a live setting where the drinks are flowing and people are ready to dance and enjoy themselves.

Their first cd, "Songs From The Road", features 17 songs recorded in front of a live audience at Miami's oldest and most famous roadhouse bar - Tobacco Road.

The cd is a great sonic picture of the band in it's natural setting - a loud smoky bar late on a Saturday night.
The audio quality is excellent.
The night's performance was captured on a multitrack digital recorder, and later mixed down by a production team whose credits include Link Wray, Robert Gordon, and The Talking Heads.

Yee Haw!!!

OK, ya got me
I hate country music. No ifs, and or buts. But I would like to get a hold of the girl on your cd cover. With all those tattoos, I know she'd give me the clap, but it might be fun. And it takes guts to make a live album when the crowd could give a rat's ass less.

This is a FUN cd.
This is a fun CD. Rock-A-Billie music, recorded live in Miami's oldest continuing operating bar, fun songs - what more could anyone want?
