Bulletville (Cincinnati, OH)
Thursday 9/25 at Mr Pitifuls 9:15pm
MARK UTLEY & BULLETVILLE performs straight-up Country music in the classic style. Originally formed as an offshoot of Magnolia Mountain, the band has now come into its own as a powerhouse live and studio outfit. The band features MM’s Mark Utley, Renee Frye, Jeff Vanover, and Todd Drake, joined by bassist Ken Kimbrell, world-renowned keyboadist Ricky Nye and award-winng pedal steel guitarist John Lang. Bulletville plays a combination of Mark’s original songs augmented by a great selection of classic Country covers by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Gram Parsons, and more.
Bulletville served as the backing band for Mark Utley’s debut solo album, Four Chords and a Lie, released in July 2013. The band has booked studio time at Ultrasuede Studio in November 2014 to record a full-length Bulletville album with The Afghan Whigs’ John Curley producing, to be released in early 2015.
