730pm: THE PALOMINOS! free show!

June 7, 2013

This San Diego California based honky-tonk band plays

classic west coast style country with vocal harmonies, steady backbeat

and a persistently twanging lead guitar. Not contemporary in style, but

certainly timeless in sound.


in the classic honky-tonk of yesteryear, The Palominos bring to the

stage and era that's long gone but far from forgotten.

The San

Diego band was formed in 2006 by brothers Thomas and James Zurek (on

guitar and bass). Playing a mix of both obscure country classics and

their own originals, The Palominos present their timeless, toe tapping

sound to a modern-day crowd that is sure to bring 'em out onto the dance floor everywhere they play.

Thomas played with the Grazers and the Barnyard Ballers, all the while

working to master his twangin' telecaster that is from and center at

every show.James, besides picking on his guitar and banjo,

spent years building up a sizable collection of vintage country records

that provides the audio blueprint for the band.Lance Hawkins

was born and raised in Southern California and has been singing country

all his life. His lead vocals capture that classic honky-tonk sound and

transports the listener back to a time when country music was both fun

and heartfelt. Mike Marcott was born and raised in San Diego,

playing drums in several bands throughout the years and his steady back

beat help to keep the dance floor full.

When the guitar starts

to twang and the drums start their shuffle, you'll feel the pull of the

dance floor.
