While growing up in central Oklahoma, Brandon Hudspeth saw Johnny Cash on Sesame Street and had to start pickin’ on guitars. As he sings, he rings the neck of his wide body Gibson like its a Flying Vee dipped in gasoline.
These guys are blazing hot! They will cause you to stomp your feet, clap your hands, and maybe dance on the tables. Levee Town generates a lot of excitement and a smokin’ good time. For your own protection, you better wear a fire suit!
Brandon Hudspeth has played professionally for several years. Originally from Oklahoma, Brandon formed a band called Traffic Jam who opened for such names as Jay McShan and Bobby Blue Bland. He has also played with Cal Collins and the legendary Clark Terry.
In 1997, at the age of 19, Brandon relocated to Kansas City where he quickly established himself as a solid performer.
