“Happy Father’s Day,” Wayne Hancock said, “unless you didn’t know. Then nice surprise!” With that, Wayne and his band launched into an instrumental during their recent appearance at Hill Country in DC.
If Hank Williams were alive today, he’d be 94 years old. It’s unlikely he’d still be making music, and, even if he were, he probably wouldn’t sound very much like the young Hank Williams. On Wednesday evening, the closest you could get to a vintage Hank Williams show was seeing Wayne “The Train” Hancock perform his style of traditional country at DC’s City Winery.
Wayne “The Train” Hancock released Slingin’ Rhythm, his most recent album, via Bloodshot Records in 2016. He’s coming around to play his catalog at City Winery on Wednesday, Sept. 5, and there’s only a handful of tickets remaining!
