Live and In Person:
Well, what can we say...even though we were able to safely play 3 outside gigs in July and 4 in August and now 2 in September, COVID-19 is sure still with us and will be for the foreseeable future, we guess, plus Billy is still on hiatus from playing so we continue to use Peter Riley on electric bass and want to thank him for doing such a great, solid job filling in. It's not the classic "Starline Sound" as you and we know it, but it's still there. As far as September, only 1 public appearance and that will be down at Pork's BBQ in New Haven on Friday, Sept 18 (Big Al/Otis' birthday..."69 an' Holdin'"!)for our last gig of the season at that venue - we want to thank Porky's for having us 3 times this summer and hope to return for more next year. Beyond September we had a few gigs booked but they are all inside and have been cancelled. On top of that, Stowe Mtn Resort contacted us, as well as all other bands, to say "No Entertainment in the base lodges at all this winter season", plus no wide-screen TVs turned on and no real bar. We expect to hear the same from the other ski areas. Sad and too bad, but it's the way it is. So, we guess that other than either a public or private gig which might come up, each of us will be home practicing and working on new material with the hope of bookings being able to begin in the spring or by early summer. We do have a few dates booked for 2021 and have listed them here. Again, they are tentative depending on where COVID, etc. is at when the time comes. In any event, we want to thank you all for your long-time, on-going appreciation and support. We wish each and every one of our fans and friends all the best under the circumstances. Be safe and well and please don't hesitate to keep in touch via our email if ya have a mind to.
The Starline Rhythm Boys
"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."
"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."
"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."
