Whitey Morgan to Host Cody Jinks + More at Inaugural BBQ Birthday Bash
If you like barbecue and badass music in a cool place, then you’re gonna want to get your ass to interior California’s Bandit Town in early September. Though the details are still being finalized, Whitey Morgan has let it be known that he’s planning to throw an annual Birthday BBQ at Bandit Town USA in North Fork, CA, with the inaugural installment on Saturday, September 9th, 2017. The lineup at the moment is Whitey himself, Cody Jinks, Ward Davis, Casey James Prestwood and Tony Martinez.
It will be intimate, it will be yummy, and the tickets are going to be limited to about 300 people, so you’re gonna want to be on top of this thing if you have any true intentions of going. Bandit Town USA is a resurrected Old West-style tourist spot located about 45 minutes north of Fresno and just south of Yosemite in the exact center of California. It is only open for special events, and boasts multiple Western-style buildings, including the Saloon where music and congregating occurs.
Whitey Morgan and Cody Jinks have often been seen touring together in recent years, many times with Ward Davis in tow. Ward has also been opening for Cody Jinks during much of 2017, while Tony Martinez is often employed as a member of Whitey Morgan’s 78’s, and opens shows himself. Casey James Prestwood from Devner, CO is also part of the clan. And these aren’t just artists who happen to know each other and who share some of the same management. They’re road-tested blood brothers looking to save country music by resurrecting the true style honky tonk and songwriter-driven music. Any chance to see then in intimate environs should not be passed up.
More info on lineup and tickets when available.

Isn’t Casey Prestwood one of the dudes that used to be in Drag the River? I loved their stuff, I wish it was still easier to find

Seen those gentlemen together last year in LA. and it was such a good concert!!! Those guys really put the C in country. So much better live. I’d love to attend this event if I can manage to huff my way up north around that time.

Everything about that sounds awesome. I fell asleep and was asked to leave the venue last time I saw Whitey with Tony Martinez opening. The few days before that show was a crazy schedule with a lot of time on the road (unrelated to the show) so I was proud of myself for even getting there but I wish I could have made it to the end. I’ll have to check out Prestwood since I moved to Denver earlier this year. I’ve already seen more death and thrash metal legends here in the last few months than the previous decade but haven’t seen much country/roots stuff come through.

I saw Ward and Cody in Macon a while back. One of the best shows I’ve seen and super nice guys. Really wish I lived on the west coast to see this I’m sure it’s gonna be awesome.

This sounds really cool. I think Whitey’s wife owns Bandit Town, along with a clothing line called Bandit Brand. And her and Whitey live either on the property or nearby…..

Next week Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis and Colter Wall are playing a gig in Philly at a venue that has room for 600 people and no seats. Doesn’t a bill like that deserve better than that?

It’s a country music crime.
Unfortunately, the music judges, juries, and police have all been paid off or are in on it.

Would love to make the show if possible.
