A Preview – This Weekend on Troubadour, TX

(Addison, TX) November 10th 2011

This weekend we get to see some of the Troubadours we’ve grown to love like – Little Brave, Zane Williams, Beth Wood, Susan Ashton and Guthrie Kennard. But we will also be seeing some fresh faces. Green River Ordinance will be making a stop on Troubadour, TX.


You’ll get a front row seat for their showcase performance of “Where the West Wind Blows”.

We don’t get to follow them around this episode, this is just a tease for what’s to come. But we can’t leave you hanging too much, so here’s a little dish on each of the guys…


Josh Jenkins  is the lead singer , and he’s got the voice to prove it! He also plays the acoustic.


Joshua Wilkerson rocks vocals and the electric guitar.


Jamey Ice brings the heat on the electric guitar.


Geoff Ice is on the bass and vocals. He also has a talent for the accordion..something you’ll get to see during the showcase.


Denton Hunker is the percussionist of the group and he plays a mean set of drums.

Stay tuned for more of these guys later in the season but for now catch their showcase this weekend on Troubadour, TX!

Cheers, E!
