Bill KirchenCome hitch a ride to honky-tonk heaven with Bill Kirchen, as the "Titan of the Telecaster" and his band Too Much Fun perform old favorites and newly penned originals, including selections from Word to the Wise, his 2010 all-star duet CD. With his scorching guitar runs and elegant twang, Bill celebrates an American tradition where country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, and in the western swing of Texas and California honky-tonks, infusing rockabilly music with an irresistible blend of hard-core devotion and flat-out fun. A great showman as well as one of the hottest guitar-slingers ever to blow the roof off the Freight, he someone you should not miss.

Bill first gained renown as lead guitarist for Commander Cody & his Lost Planet Airmen, the renegade country-rock band that tuned in a whole generation to the joys of unvarnished rockabilly music. It was Bill's Telecaster guitar that drove "Hot Rod Lincoln" up the Grapevine Hill onto the Top Ten single recording charts in 1972.

Bill's band, Too Much Fun, plus special guest keyboardist Austin de Lone, join Bill as he continues to polish his reputation as one of America's premier roots-rock musicians, rousing that rebel rockabilly trucker that slumbers deep inside us all.
