Pinedale’s Soundcheck Summer Music Series comes to a close this Friday, August 12 with a two-band bill featuring Dallas-based super-group The Texas Gentlemen headlining Missouri-based
singer/songwriter Forrest McCurren will open the show (duo)!
Music will start at 5:00 p.m.
Shows are free to the public and are kid/pet friendly.
The Texas Gentlemen are no ordinary Gents! Rather, the members—co-singers and frontmen Nik Lee and Daniel Creamer (who also handle guitar and keys, respectively); guitarist Ryan Ake; bassist Scott Edgar Lee, Jr.; and drummer Paul Grass—have spent the last half-decade logging thousands of hours of stage and studio time behind a wide array of artists, from legends including Kris Kristofferson, George Strait and Joe Ely to young whippersnappers like Leon Bridges and Shakey Graves.
While the Gentlemen’s sound is clearly steeped in the classic roots, rock and pop music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, there’s a dreamy, spacey and occasionally progressive element to what they do that seems to detach the music from belonging to any particular place and time.
Forrest McCurren’s songs, and their characters, could only come from the Middle of Missouri. Where fertile plains meet the rocky, Ozark hills. Where rivers roll into wide open skies, and Saturday night beer-binging turns into Sunday morning hymn-singing. They are familiar and strange, from the town and the country, looking to get lost and hoping to be found.
