Enjoy the ride with the Trailer Park Troubadours
Antsy McClain & The Trailer Park Troubadours return to the Brewery Arts Center in an rolicking outdoor concert Friday.
Join fellow Flamingo heads, as the band’s fans are affectionately known, for a barbecue at 6 p.m.
Music starts at 7:30 p.m. with Chuck Grossman opening for the Troubadours, who take the stage at 8:15 p.m.
Nicknamed the Polyester Dressed Flamingo Heads, the Troubadours turn heads with their combination of bright colors mixed with plaids. They may not take themselves seriously, but they do play some seriously good music.
McClain grew up in a little Kentucky trailer park with a truck driver dad and an “Avon lady” mom. The park life and people imprinted themselves on his life and talent. A junior high school football coach nicknamed him “Antsy” because of his high energy, which he now turns to energizing the stage.
He also energizes his music with poignant lyrics masked in humor as he sings about life in a single wide.
Tommy Smothers called McClain, “one of America’s great poets.”
While decked out in a pompadour hairstyle and sporting Buddy Holly attire, McClain his audiences on a journey through folk, country, rock and R&B, while telling stories about the people and places that shaped his life. You’ll be tapping your toes with a grin on your face when the band performs songs such as “I Married Up,” “Facebook Blues,” “The Wreck of Marcia Brady” and “Everything’s a Dollar.”
McClain along with the Troubadours hope fans enjoy the ride and appreciate their music as an anecdote to our troubled times and as a much needed escape from the often grueling world.
The barbecue features all-American favorites like burgers, hot dogs, beans, salad and chips. No coolers or glass containers are allowed, but it’s okay to bring your own low back chairs.
Tickets are $36.95 for general admission; BAC members, students and seniors are $33.95, and children under 10 are $14.95. Ticket prices include the barbecue and one drink.
