John Howie Jr. and the Rosewood Bluff at Snug Harbor (2/3/12)

Posted By on Fri, Feb 3, 2012 at 8:43 AM

JOHN HOWIE JR. AND THE ROSEWOOD BLUFF Though John Howie lent his plaintive, resonant baritone to Two Dollar Pistols for 13 years, his more recent project is anything but a Pistols reboot. In John Howie and the Rosewood Bluff, the country vocalist and songwriter adopts an electric honky-tonk character punctuated by haunting pedal steel lines. Howie brings Hank Sr.-style wordplay to a Merle-and-Waylon tele twang on songs like “Handful of Heartaches” while his band rolls along in a mid-tempo shuffle. Cowboy boots are optional. $7. Snug Harbor.
