Hard Luck Symphony
In the summer of 2005 the then nameless Getocowboys met together at Hill's café in Austin, Texas. Tres Womack was playing with his own band supporting his debut album "Real Simple". Luke Adair and Josh Droegemueller were supporting "Downtown" an album with the band "Luke and B". As a group, they hadn't played a note together as they set up on the outdoor stage. Luke and Tres scribbled some songs down for a set list and then they walked out on a wire and started the show. As they felt out the songs, making up the music as they went, a new fan in the crowd asked, "What's the name of y'all's band?". . . . . . "We need a name. . . A beer goes to the best band name at the end of the night!" Tres said comically into the microphone. Traditionally after a show at Hill's the performing bands sign the walls surrounding the stage. The "spelling champ" fiddle player wrote the winning name low and to the right facing the back white wall birthing the Getocowboys. The Getocowboys' free lance musical style continued on for a few years squeezing Geto gigs into their busy personal lives and other band obligations. They recorded "Live at the Texas Tavern" which became one of the most played albums of all time for the ever growing Radio Free Texas. Tres Womack continued on with his own band recording his first full length album "Freak Show" which is still receiving national airplay on Americana radio. Luke, Tres, and Josh, all with unique musical influences, met in the middle on the kind of structure bands like Wilco and Whiskeytown have and had and in April of 2008 they completed "Hard Luck Symphony". Supporting the new album that sounds like a play list of your favorite songs, the Geto Show will begin around Texas and beyond in May of 2008.
