“So thrilled to get to see 6 String Drag again. They’re as great as ever. Like reconnecting with a long lost friend.” - Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers)
“...Stax ’n’ tonk swagger and highline harmonies" – Boston Globe (“The Albums We Are Looking Forward To”)
"Led by frontman Kenny Roby, 6 String Drag merges their early punk roots with no-frills southern honky tonk in a show that is sure to see your southern pride surge. Roby’s story telling excels, too, making the band’s songs resonate long after the amplifiers have gone quiet." - Charlotte Viewpoint
After 16 years in hibernation, 6 String Drag is awake and as potent as ever. In the mid to late ‘90s, the Carolinas quartet stood out as one of the pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement. Their Steve Earle-produced LP, “High Hat” remains an undisputed classic of its era. (The band was also on Earle's E-Squared Records)
Founding members Kenny Roby, Rob Keller, Ray Duffey and “High Hat” era guitarist Scotty Miller (along with other former members on keyboards and horns) come together for the band’s 2015 reformation release “Roots Rock ‘N’ Roll” for a celebration of the long lost art old school rock ‘n’ roll. The 11 new original songs are at the same time rooted in things we all know and love and freshly non-retro. (release date 2/10/15 on The Royal Potato Family label)
