Having a successful career as a musical artist for just a handful of years is impressive enough and very commendable, but having one that spans the course of multiple decades, albums, bands, and projects is near impossible – Unless you are like my dear friend Tommy Stinson!
I want to send a huge congratulations to my buddy Tommy Stinson and his new musical project, Cowboys In The Campfire! They hit the road last week, beginning a 14-stop tour in support of their album titled, “Wronger.”
We actually caught Tommy Stinson and Cowboys In The Campfire on their third stop of the tour on Friday night. The show took place in Lambertville, New Jersey, on September 8th, at a venue called More Than Q, and it was highly entertaining!
Tommy Stinson and his bandmates, Chops LaConte, the upright bass guitarist, and Chip Roberts, guitarist and the husband of former WMGK DJ, Debbi Calton, dress up in matching shirts and deliver a very cool country, western, and rockabilly vibe!
I have actually been watching Tommy sing solo since he formed Bash & Pop – a band that I named, which I am extremely proud of – and his voice has never sounded better! You have to hear it for yourself in person, but I have some videos throughout this post to hear it digitally!
Plus, Chip is one of the best guitar players you will ever see – his slide guitar is legendary – and Chops on his stand-up bass adds so much to the trio! They are a great group of musicians, for sure!
If you did not know, Tommy Stinson is a founding member of The Replacements, and played bass in Guns N’ Roses for 17 years as well as playing bass in Soul Asylum! Like I said in the intro, that’s a hell of a career!
If you have the opportunity to catch Tommy Stinson and Cowboys In The Campfire on this tour, I highly recommend that you do! Check out the remaining dates right here!
