Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock to appear at the Underground



Gallatin Road Productions, the company that brought John Doe & The Sadies and Richmond Fontaine to Hawkins Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch this past summer, is starting 2010 with two new shows that can’t be missed.

On Saturday, Jan. 23, Las Vegas-based alt-country rockers The Clydesdale are coming to The Biggest Little City Club in Reno. Music reviewers in their hometown have called their show one of the best live acts around. The show starts around 9 p.m., and tickets are $5 at the door.

On Sunday, Jan. 31, Wayne “The Train” Hancock will be appearing at The Underground. Known as the King of Juke Joint Swing, his shows are full of rocking good energy. Hancock, whose music is often compared to Hank Williams, released his debut album Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995 to critical acclaim. His most recent album, Viper of Melody, was released in 2009 under the Bloodshot Records label.

Opening the show for Wayne “The Train” Hancock are local Reno fan favorites Leroy Virgil and the Loaded Dice and The Cowbelleros. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets are $10 at the door.

New shows are currently being planned–including Nevada Backwards coming to The Biggest Little City Club in February. Check out their music on their MySpace page, www.myspace.com/nevadabackwards.
