The B-Stars Trio!
Western Swing at the B&B
Surf-a-billy Swing Time Dance Party
The B-Stars are a San Francisco-based Americana combo that stirs up a hearty stew of honky tonk and hillbilly hits for your listening and dancing pleasure. With nods to the country and western stars of the late 1940s and 1950s, these sharp-suited honky tonkers will be singin’ and swingin’ their ever-lovin’ hearts out.
The Trio features Greg Yanito on acoustic rhythm guitar, Larry Chung on fiddle plus electric and steel guitars, and Eric Reedy on gut-stringed upright bass fiddle, making for a classic western jazz combo. Strong songwriting, an entertaining live show, and a few generations’ worth of musical experience give The B-Stars the perfect recipe to keep fans dancing and singing along to a full catalog of fresh original material rooted in the jazz & country western music pioneered by the likes of Lefty Frizzell, Carl Smith, Hank Penny, Bob Wills, and the great Hank Williams Sr.
With a debut album released in 2010, a follow up album produced with the help of Pappy Stuckey, an East Coast tour & Canadian festival appearance under their belts, and three consecutive appearances at Viva Las Vegas, The B-Stars have begun to establish an international audience that just can’t get enough of that hillbilly beat!
