Tweed and Dixie at the Aplex!
Tweed and Dixie make their first appearance at the winter concert series, Saturday, January 21st at the Aplex. They first appeared in Alpena at the summer concert series in 2016 and WOWED THE CROWD!
The honest memoirs of country music’s forefathers and all-out rock and roll attitude collide within the beautiful contradiction known as Tweed And Dixie. Meeting somewhere between Waylon and Whitesnake, their sound has been crafted from growing up in the working class, grease-driven Motor City Madhouse and running the back roads of Great Lakes country. The group’s chemistry is comprised of the deeply rooted, country-rock soul of Barry Forster, pop-driven energy of Billy Gunther, gut-busting bass lines and soaring vocals of Rick Maida, and soulful, thunder-drumming of Justin Clifford (and his beard).
