Billy Bob Thornton & The Boxmasters
PRESENTED BY PARKER ARTS
Teddy Andreadis, J.D. Andrew and Billy Bob “Bud” Thornton make up “The Boxmasters”; an American roots-rock band of seasoned musicians whose sound is rich in rhythm and story.
Wednesday, April 12 - 7:30 PM
In 2007, J.D. Andrew and Bud Thornton started a project that mixed early ‘60’s Hillbilly music and the British Invasion and called the band “The Boxmasters.” Now 10 years later, J.D., Bud, and Teddy Andreadis have released 7 albums (most double LP’s), toured across the U.S. and Canada multiple times, and now preparing to cross the country again for the “Tea Surfing Tour.”
2016 proved to be a productive year for The Boxmasters. “Boys And Girls…And The World” was released in August, followed closely by “Tea Surfing” in late November. Joining The Boxmasters on this album are friends such as Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Kevin Eubanks and longtime collaborators Jon Rauhouse, Brad Davis and Kirk McKim. The 21 songs showcase the band’s love of English Mod bands and bands from Southern California in the ‘60’s.
After 10 years, The Boxmasters show no signs of slowing down, and are actually more productive than ever. A new album is almost completed which should be available in the fall of 2017.
