Voted 2008 Group of the Year by Freeform American Roots DJ's around the world, Masquerade For Heartache is the follow-up to the Starline Rhythm Boys' monumental live recording, Live at Charlie-O's World Famous. More killer live tracks. Includes a mix of originals and covers with Danny Coane and Big Al Lemery sharing the vocal duties and Billy Bratcher driving it all home on stand-up bass.
This recording demonstrates, once again, that the Starline Rhythm Boys can hold their own with anyone in delivering a scorching live performance. Honky Tonk, Rockabilly and straight up Country is what they do and they deliver it with a passion and honesty that is surely missing in today's country music scene.
"...it's all right here; the tear jerkers, the crowd workers, tales of the new fools on the old stools..." -Bill Kirchen
