When these words are sung by Bullhonky Deluxe, they’re more than just a catchy chorus. To the members of this Flint, Michigan-based band, hard-rockin’ country music is a mission statement. Thousands of country music lovers across the state would agree – they continue to enjoy Bullhonky Deluxe’s flawless blend of outlaw country, Southern rock and honky-tonk classics. Even the group’s high-energy originals have become anthems to its ever-growing legion of loyal fans, known as the “Bullhonky Nation.” What’s even more impressive than the set-list is the trademark way the group plays these songs – by blazing through them with the intensified rage of an inferno, purging every trace of energy from their bodies and souls and transcending that intensity to the crowd. In short, Bullhonky Deluxe is more than a band … it’s an experience!
As Michigan-area bands go, Bullhonky Deluxe is nothing short of a “supergroup.” Founding fathers Brian "Bug" Gallagher (guitar/vocals) and Dennis "Big Sexy" Perkins (bass/vocals/harps) were already well known from their successful rock band Mindspeed, and have over the years been joined by many of the area's top musician's. They are currently joined by "the best of the best" in lead guitarist Jeremy "Leroy Blitz" Biltz (Whitey Morgan and the 78's/Two Tone Tobacco), and venerable drumming ace Scott "Fishbone" Fisher (Crop Circle/Toolology). With this all-star lineup in place for 2014, Bullhonky Deluxe are at the top of their game both on stage and in the studio. In addition to being regular performers at legendary concert venues The Machine Shop and Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, the band also has shared the stage with music legends Montgomery Gentry, Colt Ford, David Allen Coe, Joe Diffie, Aaron Tippin, Ty Stone, Whitey Morgan and the 78's, Confederate Railroad, John Michael Montgomery, Randy Houser, Craig Morgan, Granger Smith/Earl Dibbles Jr. and Molly Hatchet!
