Mitch Polzak is one swingin’ cat! Wait ’til you hear him smoke that pig with lightning speed. His trio is the toast of rockabilly festivals, county fairs, bars and clubs throughout the Bay Area and the Central Valley, as well as the Club Deluxe over on Haight, Blondies over on Valencia, and now, Bird & Beckett!
Hank’s been on the scene for a couple decades at least, playing lead guitar and bass, singing, all manner of country music, swing for dancers, whatever requires a fabulous stage presence and consummate skill and talent.
As for Mr. K.O.? Kenny “The Haiku Cowboy” Owen? All defer to this legend of the country music circuit. He’s a granddaddy of the scene, and the proud granddad of at least one or two little ones out in Texas or some such place. We know him, we love him, and no combo leader need have a moment’s doubt when he’s settled in behind his kit.
You’re gonna like this band, if you don’t already.
