ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gin Palace Jesters - Honkytonk Fools

The Gin Palace Jesters play honkytonk, country boogie, western swing and some rockabilly flavoured stuff in the sincerest traditional style. Right from the heart of the U.S. Comes a fresh, modern Honky Tonk album in Nashville style. Produced by Sean Mencher, known from the band High Noon, recorded in one of Nashville finest studios. Additional musicians include Rosie Flores, Jason Carter and many more. 15 melodic hits from Love Songs, Novelty, Honky Tonk and Rockin' Tunes. Backed up by a radio campaign in the US, this album has definately the chance to climb the charts. No Filler, only Killer songs, written by Dave Sisson, who is wellknown from the Rockabilly band Three Blue Teardrops. Our recommendations are: Lover Not A Fighter, a wonderful novelty story, 18 Days & 18 Wheels, Drink One For Me and Honky Tonk Fool. Hear this CD over and over, you will discover beautiful melodies, strong and funny lyrics in a BR5-49 / Dale Watson / Nashville Sound. Wonderful stuff.

"Chicago's original honky-tonk fools," the Gin Palace Jesters are purveyors of the finest in hard hitting hillbilly Honky-tonk, Country Boogie and Western Swing . Infused with a deep and sincere fondness for all traditional American musical styles, the sound of the Gin Palace Jesters could best be described as being akin to the sounds of Country Music's "Golden" age. Although a portion of their live performances come from their vast catalog of the Hillbilly & Country Hit Parade, these boys are not mere followers or imitators. They also posses the talent of 3 songwriters performing original novelty numbers, heartfelt love songs, honky-tonk weepers, drinking songs and dark ballads. Delivering 3 and 4 part country harmony, the Gin Palace Jesters prove that authentic country and cowboy music can still hold validity in both traditional songs as well as brand spankin' new originals. A sure fire hit of any party, these merry melody makers bring their music wherever they can find a crowd to listen, dance and share a good time with!

The Gin Palace Jesters from Chicago, Illinois are a four men troop and they are purveyors of the finest in hard hitting hillbilly Honky-tonk, Country Boogie and Western Swing . Infused with a deep and sincere fondness for all traditional American musical styles, the sound of the Gin Palace Jesters could best be described as being akin to the sounds of Country Music's "Golden" age. Although a portion of their live performances come from their vast catalog of the Hillbilly & Country Hit Parade, these boys are not mere followers or imitators. They also posses the talent of 3 songwriters performing original novelty numbers, heartfelt love songs, honky-tonk weepers, drinking songs and dark ballads. Delivering 3 and 4 part country harmony, the Gin Palace Jesters prove that authentic country and cowboy music can still hold validity in both traditional songs as well as brand new originals. Garnishing help from the occasional fiddle player, the Gin Palace Jesters are a true authentic American band often seen holding court where the thrones are bar stools, the lights are made of neon, the holy spirits are served on the rocks, and Hank Williams is King.

This band's music is no copycat material, they created their own style and 14, yep you're right, 14 of 15 songs were written partly by Dave Sisson who plays the guitar and by Kevin Carter who plays the Pedal Steel. A brilliant example of intelligent Country Roots Music with many novelty elements performed by a high quality and harmonic band. This is definitely music you'd like to listen to if you're on the highway, maybe on the way to your girl or to your family.

This platter was produced by Sean Mencher (High Noon), backed up by some famous musicians like Rosie Flores and finally picked up by Rhythm Bomb Records. If you like BR5-49, Dale Watson or the Chrome Daddies, this is the right choice. The guys will be on tour in June 2005 in Europe for the first and will play in Finland (Midsummer Jamboree), Spain (Screamin' Festival) and some gigs in Holland and Germany too.

COKE

WHAT A GREAT CD; DIDN'T KNOW THAT MUSIC STILL WAS OUT THERE......
Happened upon this CD quite by accident; and what a great accident it turned out to be. Didn't realize that this style and type of music still is out there to be had. It was a refreshing find.

The group does a GREAT job and there was not one song that I personally didn't care for. They have a good varity and mix in the CD content and will certainly be looking forward to seeing more materials by them.

Keep up the great work................
