Live and In Person: 

Checking in with Fans, Friends and Curious Seekers:   Stay posted for an announcement regarding our status as a band.  This will appear sometime in August.  Otherwise, FYI, 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.  The condition of Al's playing is unknown.   Danny is working steadily 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.   That's about it for now.  Hope everyone is well an' doin' good.   We'll be in touch on this website homepage.

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
