Great Time Opening for Chuck Berry!

We had a wonderful time performing at Nutty Jerry’s in Winnie, Texas, on Friday, March 4th! It was a honor to get to open for Chuck Berry!

Thanks to the staff, stage crew, and the sound guys at Nutty Jerry’s for taking care of us and for doing such a great job. Chuck Berry put on an awesome show!

And to everyone who hollered out “One More!” at the end of our set, we can’t tell you how much we appreciated that!

Check our “Upcoming Shows” page for new dates. Also, visit us on facebook, and send a friend request to the bandmembers.

The Chuck Berry show is another to add to our list of notable artists for whom Longneck Road has opened, including The Charlie Daniels Band, Wayne Toups and Zydecajun, and Django Walker.

Every show is a little bigger and better than the last … join Longneck Road on our unique and exciting ride!

This Saturday at The Logon Cafe!

On the heels of the big performance last week at the Port Arthur Civic Center, Longneck Road performs on Saturday, January 29 at The Logon Cafe, 3805 Calder Avenue in Beaumont. The show starts at 8:30 p.m., and the cover is only $5.00!

For this show, we’ve planned a first set with “acoustic” — the full band but with Dick playing acoustic guitar — versions of some of our favorite songs. This format is fun for the band, and this will be the first time we’ve played acoustic versions of several of our songs. The second set will be the full electric band, with a mix of rockin’ originals and classic rock covers. Don’t miss this show!
