Whitey Morgan and the 78s

Whitey Morgan and the 78s

Whitey Morgan and the 78's are a Honky Tonk band from Flint, Michigan. They haven't re-invented the wheel, they just picked it up and started it rolling all over again. In Flint, the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to a whole generation of southern transplants who came up US-23 to Flint looking for the good life. In the spirit of William Morgan, Waylon, Merle and Paycheck; Whitey's melodies help people forget their problems for a few hours and serve as the guideline for drinking sorrows away. The 78's halftime groove brings out everyone's dancing shoes and while Whitey and the 78's play, the world is a better place... Emerging from the Detroit area music scene, re-creating a forgotten genre for the area, Whitey Morgan and the 78's have toured the country spreading their sound and attitude everywhere they go. They play honky tonk tunes in any club in any town without apology—they drive their point home just like their families drove the cars they built on the line home from work. With a purpose. Around 200 shows a year you can count on Whitey Morgan and the 78's to deliver. Whitey's whiskey tinged vocals, the 78's foot stomping beats, all relentlessly stirring up dance floors everywhere they go. The bottle turns up, spirits elevate and in this world, there isn't a person who couldn't use Whitey Morgan and the 78's.

Dave Hill

The story begins in Waterbury, Ct in the early 90’s. Dave spent the weekends at his Dad’s house as a little kid where he listened to Lynyrd Skynyrd vinyls and hammered on the old beat up instruments his single father had in place of furniture. Dave’s song “Daddy’s Records” tells the story of his music roots, childhood, family life and moving forward as a man. The song is proof of why he got the nickname “old soul.” He always had wisdom beyond his years and a deep gratitude and love for everything and everyone around him. Inspired by the Outlaw and Alternative country greats of the past and present like Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Mearl Haggard, Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings, Chris Knight and Jason Boland… Dave’s songs tell stories of all the hardships and trials we go through in this life. The truth, no matter how dark, bleeds out of his songs. Dave has performed his one man acoustic shows every weekend at various bars in the greater Waterbury area since 2012. Between the frequent local radio appearances, bar gigs and charitable shows, Dave continues grow faster than most. The skeptics that say Dave’s live show doesn’t include many popular songs and is too country for the crowds he plays for… immediately get won over after the 1st set.
