Live and In Person: 

Nov 10 2022 UPDATE to OUR WEBSITE:  Checking in again with Fans, Friends and Curious Seekers:   We have not posted anything about the band since a post sometime this summer.  Once again, we have not played any shows since Sept 2021.   Billy is still hard at work at his demanding restaurant mgr job at the Residence at Quarry Hill (senior living) in Burlington with really very little time, if any, to play out.  Also, he'll be turning the BIG 6-OH next Tues, Nov 15.   Danny C had a huge total surprise 75th birthday bash at the Barre Legion back on Oct 23rd, which was organized by Jean Elizabeth ("J.E.") Shockley and Rich Backer.  They pulled out all the stops with about 115 attending and a bunch of music played by various local artists/friends.   Want to give them a huge thanks for that.  Big Al (aka) "Otis" or "The Captain" has been fishing and playing some music with guys from Blues for Breakfast.  Also,  Danny is still working fairly often with his alt-bands:  The VT Bluegrass Pioneers (info & calendar can be found at banjodan.com), The WDEV Radio Rangers and the McCaffrey, Coane & Rowell trio - shows for both those groups are posted on Colin's website at colinmcaffrey.com.   So that's about it for now, but we will be posting a BIG FAREWELL to all our friends and fans next month and this website will be taken down by the beginning of 2023.  After 24 yrs together, we are just not able to continue on due to varying situations/conditions. We hope everyone is well an' doin' good and, again, want to thank all our friends and fans for their admiration and support over all these years.

Accolades

"These boys remind me of the good old days, with a sound that's between Memphis and Nashville.  Its good, clean and from the heart - and nowadays that's fresher."
-Vassar Clements
"This is the Real Deal. The Starline Rhythm Boys know how to make it rock and let it swing.  They dish it out full strength, adult dosage.  I'll take all of this I can get."
-Bill Kirchen
"The subjects of these songs - sin, salvation, family farms, women, drunk tanks, job layoffs, diners, and dearly departed friends - are songs by and for the people.  There is no pretension or rock star attitude in what you boys are laying down, just straightforward songs from the heart that are some of the best newly written and recorded country songs since the giants of country music have gone to rockabilly heaven."
-Deke Dickerson
