The Boys Named Sue

The Boys Named Sue aren't your average cover band. Sure, they have a set list chock-full of titles you'd expect--"Crazy Arms," "Ramblin' Man," "Wurlitzer Prize." But it's not these classics that set them apart. After all, how many other bands will segue into a Good Charlotte song in the middle of Hank Williams' "Kaw Liga"? Including members of Slick 57, Dallas Trainwreck, Deadman and the Fabulous Harmonaires, the five Sues put on a raucous show that's anything but predictable. That is, unless you already know how a steel guitar can effortlessly re-create the opening bars of Eminem's "Lose Yourself."
