Wild Bill and the Lost Knobs are releasing their brand new album, Scumbags of the Rodeo. Come celebrate and get your copy! Croy and the Boys are supporting and keeping the party going at 10:30.
Wild Bill and the Lost Knobs are a high energy Americana rock band from Austin, Texas. Heavily influenced by music from Austin’s trademark 70s “cosmic country” era, the band combines classic country and blues with other progressive styles to satisfy the dancers, the rockers, the rollers, and anyone else who hears them play. They look and sound like they were sent straight out of a time machine from the Armadillo World Headquarters in 1978, and quite possibly smell like it too. The band formed in a slow cooker starting with a singer songwriter show in a coffee shop. That eventually resulted in the band playing their own “Highbilly Happy Hour” residency at the world famous Antone’s.
They released their debut album, The Show, in 2014, and produced three videos to promote it. The video for “The Show” swept top honors over some of Austin’s biggest names at the Austin Music Video Race winning for best art direction, best concept, best use of song, and best music video.
Croy and the Boys
Born in northwest Ohio, Corey Baum became infatuated with Appalachian folk culture at a young age after multiple trips into the appalachian region. This interest in folk, blues and country continued to develop and take hold as did his interest in songwriting as he found a voice within these styles. Ohio’s harsh winters and crumbling economy pushed him south, relocating to Austin, Tx. Over the last decade, Corey, Croy to his friends, has been developing his midwestern take on country and folk music. As a songwriter and singer, he can be heard fronting his country band Croy and the Boysand his more light hearted garage rock project DUMB. He also stays busy playing guitar and singing with local vocalist Jazz Mills and playing bass for Austin’s premier country songwriter Leo Rondeau. Corey Baum wrote this bio in the third person.
