Bo Porter & the Dixie Rockits
Bo Porter has been playing the guitar and entertaining him self and others since the age of 6. With genuine musical heritage and steeped in classic country traditions Bo has found a permanent place here in Austin, TX. An authentic style all his own Bo sets a vocal standard we haven't seen in years. After arriving in Austin, TX late January 2007 Bo began booking himself as a solo act around the Lake Travis area, but it wasn't long before he had landed a gig for a Trio consisting of a stand up bass / rhythm guitar & vocals / electric guitar. Hi's strong baritone voice has compared with Marty Robbins, Faron Young, Merle Haggard, & even Johnny Cash. Bo's unique take on music deranges traditional hits and makes them his own. A little Classic Country, a bit of Blues, some Rock n' Roll, and a lot of heart and soul is what Bo Porter delivers. Bo includes the audience in his performances, which keeps them coming back. His comedic sensibility, and audience communication endears him to the audiences as well as the club owners. The Bo Porter show is a must see.
