MySpace Showcase Tuesday – The Divorcees

When most folks in the States think of great country music they don’t think of Canada. Now that could all change.

The Divorcees, one of Canada’s premier ambassadors of all things Honky Tonk, hammer out their brand of renegade country music…New Brunswick style.

The Divorcees wear their heroes on their tattered, flannel sleeves – Willie, Johnny, George, Buck,  Merle, Dwight, Steve, Hank, Charlie, and Waylon – as well as Southern Rockers Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynryd.

Alex Madsen, Vocals and Lead Guitar, Jason Haywood, Vocals and Guitar, Danny Roy, Lap Steel, Dobro, and Lead Guitar, Denis “TurTle” Arsenault, Bass and Brock Gallant, Drums are obviously playing music they love and they sound like the kind of band I’d like to see live.

    Nice to hear we have some friends down South. Sometime soon we’ll cross the border and some dirty old country with us, heheh…

    I’ve noticed a few country acts that come from Canada. I can’t recall many off the top of my head, but I believe Hank Snow came from Canada back in the day. I’ll have to give these guys a listen, though.

    Brody -The one time I went to Canada (Alberta) I got out at the airport in Calgary and it was like an airport in Texas or Tennessee. there were rodeo murals painted on all the walls (see here – http://cs.calgarystampede.com/). It’s no suprise they get Counrty Music.

    Alex- If you make it to New York City, the rodeo Bar is very accommodating (drop the Twang name if you do) and drop me a line and I’ll post on it.
