A rockabilly band with a pretty good show. I've seen them three times, and twice ended up onstage. Their first hit single was "Camel Walk" in 1996 off of the album "Dirt Track Date". They've toured with several bands, including the Woggles and Reverend Horton Heat. During shows they interact with the audience: they talk back, pass out some damn good fried chicken, and actually look like they're enjoying the show. (Shows like this I find much more enjoyable than bands that look sort of disgusted you even showed up to watch them)

It's nice to find some good Southern rock still being made about southern things without being degrading or overtly bad (in topic or musically). This band originating in North Carolina has had several genres-be-damned albums, with their music being referred to as "halter-top pop" or "honky-tonk tear-in-the-beer music".

Each of the band members is almost a caricature of southern stereotypes:
Rick Miller - singer / guitarist, skinny middle-aged man with long goatee, mesh back baseball caps, and overalls.
Mary Huff - vocalist / bassist, mid-20's female, usually has a blonde bee-hive when I've seen them, party dresses, and go-go boots
Chris "Crispy" Bess - keyboardist / auxiliary percussionist / rhythm guitar, large man, wears overalls, has a long beard (or did last time I saw them) dances crazy
Dave Hartman - drummer, slick looking, greased hair
