The Highballers cover the greats in "Under Covers"

We were recently introduced to a roots rocking Americana band, based out of the D.C. area: The Highballers. This month the band releases an EP "Under Covers" which feature their versions of several classic old school country hits. And this month they play two shows around D.C.; at the Rock & Roll Hotel on Friday January 13th and at Jammin' Java on Saturday January 28th. Already looking forward to their full album of originals due out in June 2012.

Mental Revenge - Written by Mel Tillis for Waylon Jennings
