The debut of The Hosty Duo at Frank & Lola's!
Often referred to as the hardest working Okie musician, Hosty has been at it for 20 years, playing big and small venues throughout the midwest. If you've ever yelled Boomer Sooner or walked down Asp Avenue, you know Mike Hosty. Norman comes to Bartlesville!
"Out of Norman, Oklahoma, witty guitar guru Mike Hosty and , two piece drummer, Mike Byars, entertain as the Hosty Duo with a tour schedule of 250 shows a year. Hosty simultaneously tears through gritty slide leads, blows harmonica and or Kazoo and uses foot pedals to stomp bass lines. His guitar collection includes an 8 string instrument that allows him to thump three bass strings with his thumb while he fingerpicks guitar. The Hosty Duo has developed a huge underground following of bikers, sorority gals, hippies and truckers."
