Dixie-fried duo Crisp and Davis to rock Sky Box for three nights

Dec. 27, 2012 @ 05:51 PM

HUNTINGTON — For the past year and a half, Nashville duo Crisp and Davis set aside their band and have been mostly wearing it out as a hard-grinding country-rock acoustic duo.

 This weekend and into New Year’s Eve they dust off the Gibson Les Pauls and let the amps bleed as they fire up the full band over at the Sky Box  Sports Bar, 2134 5th Street Road, Huntington.

 With special guests Jeremy Hall of Ten Carp Lie on drums and Jamie Hall of Split Nixon on bass, the two will be mashing out all the bar-soaked country rock that time will allow.

 Davis, who first got a writing deal in Nashville in 2006, and who has written such cool songs as “Two-Wheeled Gypsy,” “Crazy Love,”  “Out Wayne Thing,” and “Hicks in the Sticks,” said he’s stoked to break out the Les Paul’s and rock it out.

 The band will be playing about 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday, Dec. 28, 29 and 31 at the Sky Box. Call 304-525-2160.

“Y'all come and get your jams on with us because we are going electric full throttle,” said Davis, who has had two different publishing deals as well as a developmental deal Nashville's Sony Music Group.
