Honky Tonkitis

Here's where you talk to the band


Based on community concern over a recent show flyer, Private Detective John Shaft has been brought in to investigate potentially explosive allegations.

"These dudes are going around playing 'Honky style' music? What is this, 1860 Mississippi? Man, I ain't smelled something this funny since I left Harlem."

Drummer Kurt Weber reported that he met privately with Shaft to explain the situation: "I tried again and again to tell Shaft that this was just a poster error, but he just kept yelling, 'Up yours, baby!'. Honestly, I don't know what to do. He's a complicated man. I guess no one understands him but his woman."

Singer Johnny Maplewood called a press conference to try to clear up the misunderstanding, but when he announced that Shaft was a bad mother-, there were calls from the crowd of "Shut your mouth!" When Maplewood explained that he was talking about Shaft, the crowd acknowledged they could dig it.

"I don't know about this Shaft guy," Maplewood concluded, "He's a cat who won't cop out when there's danger all about. Maybe we can work out our differences over the festival's Saturday night spaghetti dinner."
