Hayseed Dixie front man, John Wheeler, will be launching his new album at The Half Moon for Independent Venue Week.
After 16 years and 14 albums, a Hayseed Dixie show set list pretty much writes itself. But the band best known for their "Rockgrass" re-imaginings of classic rock songs also has a hefty cadre of original material. For the fans who want to hear more Hayseed Dixie and John Wheeler original songs than just "I'm Keeping Your Poop (In a Jar)," for the people who actually own and listen to Hayseed Dixie albums, and also possibly for the people who have always hated Hayseed Dixie's berserk cover version songs but who think the original songs like "Alien Abduction Probe" or "Set Myself On Fire" are downright genius, or possibly not . . . Hayseed Dixie frontman and songwriter, John Wheeler, brings you the "NO COVERS SOLO SHOW." Though it isn't really a solo show because he'll have other people playing on stage with him too. You can't believe anything you read, now can you? Amen. Trans-Atlantic singer-songwriting turned inside out and right side wrong. Testify!
Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.
These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.
