C-O-U-N-T-R-Y is the song that was jamming when the performers hit the stage. Guess what that spells? Rocket science isn’t needed, but it’s not more about the word itself, more like the lifestyle.

LoCash Cowboys came rolling into town for Saturday night’s headliner for the Roar on the Shore.  I know you might be saying to yourself, “They are not local, why did you cover them?”  Well, let’s face it, it’s a show that hundreds of people went to see for free, great stage, and they are nationally known.  It was more like, who WASN’T there on Saturday night?  But these Nashville fellas felt right at home playing for a crowd of bikers and bike enthusiasts.

Preston Brust and Chris Lucas are the LoCash Cowboys.  Hailing from Baltimore and Arkansas/Indiana, these two music duos got together in Nashville, TN. Can you think of a better place to start a band? The Music City is the staple for country musicians looking to hit it big, and the LoCash Cowboys are well on their way.

Besides playing for our Erie crowd, they have played on bills with Charlie Daniels and ZZ Top. They have also played at halftime of the NBA Finals as well as the US Olympic basketball team. But they don’t just perform, they write too.

They have written theme songs to “Tuckerville” and “Pageant School: Becoming Miss America”.  They have worked with Jeffery Steele (pretty big deal in country music song writing). The result of their skills is their debut album, “This Is How We Do It”.

Singing…check.  Writing…check. Playing…check.  What else can make the crowd go crazy? How about some high energy stage performing? Check!

To say these guys have fun when they are on stage is an understatement.  They play like a kid waking up on Christmas morning.  They even interact with the crowd asking questions and picking people in the crowd to get the camera on them.  At one point, they stopped singing and asked a question about, what else, trucks and motorcycles.

Hopefully the LoCash Cowboys come back around soon, because they were a great band to see.  Who knows, you may see them when they are the headliner at a bigger stage/event.  For a free show, people definitely got their money’s worth.

Be sure to read up on the cowboys and listen to their tracks on their website.  You can catch them on iTunes and don’t forget to see the entire photo gallery of the show by clicking here.
