Cory Grinder and the Playboy Scouts, a Cleveland based honky-tonk band, has hit these post pandemic times running with a new album of old school Bakersfield country chock full of hard driving trucker tunes, country waltzes and groovin’ hillbilly jams. The 10 tracks on their latest release – “Honky Tonkin’ Beauty Supreme” – more than exemplify their Playboy Scout oath of “On my honor I will do my duty to Two Step Dancers and Honky Tonkers everywhere.”
Running the gamut from the western swing of “The Best Punishment” to the twelve string California cool of “Back Here On This Throne” and on to the barroom anthem of “Drinkin’ Lots of Wine” the sound on “Honky Tonkin’ Beauty Supreme” is reminiscent of old school Bakersfield records and was recorded with old RCA and Neumann microphones to capture that magic.
The band, who play original hillbilly tunes inspired by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, formed in Cleveland in 2016 and released their debut album “Cahoots And Other Favorites” in the Fall of 2018. Since then, the band has taken to the road and toured through Nashville, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Chicago, Texas, North Carolina, Detroit, and more. They are affectionately known for their blue bus and encouraging others to join their troop. The band has an exciting live show that is also quite adaptable to the setting. They fit very well playing dancehalls for two steppers, but aren’t afraid to turn it up at a rowdy bar gig. Simply put, the band aims to please.
Marty Bush is a Kansas City, MO based guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He’s plays writes sad cowboy songs and has an album coming out this fall.
