Singer-songwriter Dan Hardick and girl singer Suzee Brooks (AKA “Hondo” and “Teensy”) started out harmonizing at family campfires which led to harder stuff: Karaoke bars, open mics, hootenannies, song circles - that kind of thing. Eventually, Dan asked Suzee to join the band and Fingerpistol got a little girlier...just a Teensy bit. Onstage Dan and Suzee are irrepressible raconteurs, occasional fabulists, and their own worst critics...why not? It’s something they’re good at. So maybe they’re not Conway and Loretta, George and Tammy, or Gram and Emmylou, but give them credit for sticking it out well beyond their expiration date; for continuing to navigate the treacherous gauntlet of the music business with a sense of adventure and optimism, and for being brave enough to be “never was” musicians who are old enough to be mistaken for has-beens. Maybe someday there will be a Grammy for that, but don’t hold your breath.
Come check out a live show and get to know country music legend pedal steel player Neil Flanz, the pride of Ft. Worth, guitarist Bill Terry, band genius and bassist Sam Wilson, and God stomping drummer Jill Csekitz … and of course Hondo and Teensy. You’ll be glad you did.
