Doug Strahan & The Good Neighbors

Moving south from Illinois for warmer weather and a barroom education of country picking was, according to Doug, among a plethora of bad choices, one of the best decisions he's made in his adult life. A stew pot of roots music that eases on in the direction of Blue-­Eyed Soul but finds home on the bar stool of the Dew Drop Inn, The Horse Shoe Lounge, your neighborhood watering hole.

We've been working to get Bandito's in for quite some time and the day is finally here!  They live in Nashville these days, but this is our first Alabama-born band.  One more state with a big blue pin.

This is high-energy, southern blues and rock.  Three chords and a breakdown, shimmying shins and stomping heels.

Alex Culbreth

Alex was a fantastic hit the first time he came in.  He's one of those rare solo artists that doesn't seem like a solo artist - there's way too many instruments on stage for one dude to play, but play 'em he does.

Gritty, dirty, reverby acoustic country.

Smokey & The Mirror

"Bernice and Bryan Hembree have so much chemistry and musical talent it’s ridiculous. It’s the perfect complement of a female and male vocal. She has the soothing, higher pitched voice and his, is that of a weary traveler. His vocals really nail that Americana, folky, “I’ve been traveling this long road for a while” style voice. Their set was solid and just really, really good!"

The duo will be joined for this special performance by Terry "Buffalo" Ware (guitar) and Giovanni Carnuccio III (drums), two guys you've seen most often performing across the country with John Fullbright.

The Howlin' Brothers

A SPECIAL THURSDAY NIGHT OF LIVE MUSIC!

We couldn't let The Howlin' Brothers cruise through Oklahoma without making a stop at FnL's, so we've added live music on a Thursday to kick off the month of May!

Thirty Tigers A&R chief Kim Buie: “The Howlin’ Brothers’ songs, while lyrically simple, pack the sonic wallop of blistering angst and attitude, contrasted by songs full of melodic heart tugs, and still more songs that are just plain ol’ killer,” she says. 

This isn't Nashville Country, this is Nashville Americana.  There's some pretty cool music coming out of that town no matter what you hear on the radio, and this is some of it.
