The Tex Pistols Band couldn’t be much further from Texas, and nobody in the band is from Texas, but that doesn’t stop these four Minneapolis vets of stage and studio (Michael Johnson, Mary Jane Alm, Daisy Dillman) from producing some seriously kick butt music. The sound is classic yet new all at once. Shades of Neil Young & John Hiatt, Steve Earle & Steve Winwood, throw in some Eagles and Beatles, and stir in a little jam band jazz and you get The Tex Pistols.
All four members make their living in the business performing and recording with a variety of groups and artists in both the Twin Cites and national music scene. They have collectively shared stages with: Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Beach Boys, Prince, Tina Turner, The Judds, Bob Weir, Clint Black, David Grisman, Reba McEntire, Charlie Daniels, The Neville Brothers, Average White Band, Hank Williams Jr., Spirit, Todd Rundgren, and more.
The debut CD, “Fully Loaded,” was released in January 2011, and is full of awesome musicianship, killer writing, and big vocals. It’s a fresh sound, true to their roots, with a dash of good humor.
