Honky-tonk blues.

Byline: Victor D. Infante


The Twangbusters might be an unfamiliar name, but the players who comprise the band are certainly no strangers, including Paula Bradley (Girl Howdy, Uncle Earl) on piano, ukulele and vocals, Peter "Dr. Z" Zarkadas (Sarah Levecque Band, Raw Symphony) on electric guitar, Brian Rost (Tarbox Ramblers, Girl Howdy) on upright bass and Texas dancehall veteran drummer Billy "Wild Bill" Nadeau (Alvin Crow, Girl Howdy, the Derailers). How's the band hold up? Well, judging by the song "Too Late to Cry," pretty well. The honky-tonk tune has a simmering, boozy and bluesy feel, moving with a casual confidence and a heck of a lot of soul. Looks like this one will be a lot of fun. The Twangbusters perform at 9 p.m. Wednesday at Vincent's, 49 Suffolk St., Worcester. (508) 752-9439.
