      EVENT DETAILS
      Junior Brown

      with The Raineros
      Born in 1952 in Cottonwood, Arizona, Junior Brown showed an affinity for music at an early age. Discovering a guitar in his grandparents attic at age seven, he spent the next several years woodshedding with records and the radio. Junior was also able to tap into music he couldnt hear at home which older, college aged kids were listening to. This was possible as a result of his fathers employment at a nearby campus in 1958. Armed with this broad spectrum of source material, he had developed some formidable chops by the end of his teen years.Browns passion for Country and Western music had intensified by the late 1960s. With many prominent figures as his inspiration, he spent his nights further sharpening his musical skills in small clubs across the southwest. I played more nights in honkytonks during the 70s and 80s than most musicians will see in a lifetimeI did so many years of that, night after night, four sets a night, 15 minute breaks; I mean after that, you gotta get good or get out. Brown still prefers to refer to his favorite music as Country and Western as it was called when he began his career. More recently, however, with the exception of Classical, Modern Jazz and Rap, he has shown himself to be equally adept at virtually all styles of American music, leading many to dub him Americas most versatile musician. A listen to his catalog of recordings reveals a virtuosity in Country, Western Swing, Hawaiian, Rock and Roll, (Hard Rock, Surf, etc.), Blues, Trad. Jazz, (Swing), Pop, Bluegrass, and even Mariachi.For Fans Of: Country Music, Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Radney Foster
