JEFF WHITLOW & THE OLD BARN BAND
If you look up Traditional Country Music in the dictionary, you would find the name Jeff Whitlow right there, along with Merle Haggard, George Jones, Vern Gosdin, & Johnny Cash. With his delightfully strong, baritone, country voice, he has attained much respect from across the country in the last few years. Whether he is singing a Merle Haggard ballad, or lightning fast tune from George Jones, the results are always the same. You get an extremely fascinated crowd, which just can’t keep from clapping their hands, or tapping their toes to the pounding traditional country beat.
Jeff loves all the Old Country Music of the greats such as George Jones, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Vern Gosdin, Gene Watson, Johnny Cash and others, and his shows include many hits from each of them, as well as some of his original material.
JUDGE TALFORD BAND
In 2010, the Judge Talford Band (JTB) opened the SPBGMA awards show.
The band was selected as an alternate at the NACA convention, awarded by a panel of college students in 2011.
With their classy appearance in 30‘s circa zoot suits and tight harmony with the clean tone of acoustic instruments every live appearance attracts listeners of all different genres.
More than just a band, their known for the attention paid to their audience and close interaction. Expect a show packed with entertainment for all ages.
While touring in 2012, JTB recorded Song of the Mountains TV series for PBS. Due to the overwhelming response, the band decided to focus on name recognition in 2013 and on television, radio and that decision changed the course of the band.
In December of 2012, JTB released a single “Forty Hour Week” with the distinct approval of Jeff Cook, founding member of the legendary group AlabamA. That single was recorded at Cook’s Sound Studio in Ft. Payne, AL.
In February of 2013, JTB recorded The Shotgun Red Variety Show with 1,500,000 viewers and Midwest Country with 3,000,000 viewers. Expect more television appearances before the year is over.
