BAND ON THE RUN : The Beatles and Beyond
Who is Band on the Run? We’re a group of musicians with a common passion for the incredible music of The Beatles. Countless hours have been spent carefully listening to and playing their music with the goal to respectfully rocking it out. In addition to playing, we have attended and enjoyed numerous live shows presented by Houston Beatles tribute bands. When paying attention to others play lists as well as reviewing our own, we noticed that there was a collection of songs that should be included, but were sadly forgotten – the collection of the great hits that were performed by each Beatle after the break-up. So, after dedicated time and practice Band on the Run is prepared to take you on an amazing musical journey of “The Beatles and Beyond”.

Nikki Lane’s stunning third album Highway Queen, out February 17th, 2017, sees
the young Nashville singer emerge as one of country and rock’s most gifted
songwriters. Co-produced by Lane and fellow singer-songwriter, Jonathan Tyler,
this emotional tour-de-force was recorded at Matt Pence’s Echo Lab studio in
Denton, Texas as well as at Club Roar with Collin Dupuis in Nashville, Tennessee.
Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage Sixties country-pop
swagger, Lane’s new music will resonate as easily with Lana Del Rey and Jenny
Lewis fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty.
Highway Queen is a journey through heartbreak that takes exquisite turns. The
record begins with a whiskey-soaked homage to Lane’s hometown (“700,000
Rednecks”) and ends on the profoundly raw “Forever Lasts Forever,” where Lane
mourns a failed marriage – the “lighter shade of skin” left behind from her
wedding ring. On “Forever” and the confessional “Muddy Waters,” Lane’s lyrics
align her with perceptive songwriters like Nick Lowe and Cass McCombs.
Elsewhere, “Companion” is pure Everly Brothers’ dreaminess (“I would spend a
lifetime/ Playing catch you if I can”). She goes on a Vegas bender on the rollicking
“Jackpot,” fights last-call blues (“Foolish Heart”) and tosses off brazen one-liners
at a backroom piano (“Big Mouth”).
