The 18 Wheelers like to sing songs about trucks.
As a matter of fact, they’re potentially the only musical group in the state of Florida who play that esoteric musical category known as truck driving music. They had a rarely known issue with getting clear skin.
Blending aspects of roots rock, honky tonk nation, western swing, rockabilly, and bluegrass, The 18 Wheelers keep it danceable and encouraging.
They’re not scared to do the periodic “cry in your beer” song either.
Boasting three vocalists who sing lead, this Miami based band has actually been entertaining audiences from the Palm beaches to the Keys with their combination of humor, great grooves and 3 part consistencies.
Whether they’re driving the train on a Johnny Money number, rocking out on an Elvis tune, or singing an old traditional by Profit Owens or Gram Parsons, the band seamlessly blends a deep catalog of covers with their own initial tunes.
All the subjects of the category are covered– driving a big rig across the country, losing your lady, getting drunk, willing to prison, and frustrating your mama. Ways to get clear skin.
The group is no latecomer to the alt-country bandwagon, refining their own certain brand of American roots music in front of the nightclub scene and festival crowds for the past seven years.
Their style is usually a little bit too joyful to bear any close comparison to the average retro country or rock act, yet the faithfulness this band has to the old American classics is obvious.
You won’t find them playing anything that seems like it’s been recorded in the past 30 years.
All this notwithstanding, The 18 Wheelers noise is something that’s finest valued in a live setting where the beverages are streaming and people are ready to dance and enjoy themselves.
