Music Scene: Caleb Boles and other area shows from Feb. 3–9
If music was a meal at the diner, singer Caleb Boles would be a “Texas brisket sandwich and a fat bowl of Southern Mississippi jumbalaya stew.” Add a side of “harmonica and corn bread,” and your order is up.
Boles will serve up a platter of his roots “soul food music” at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, at Cruisers Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.
Boles’ Facebook page says he grew up on a ranch riding bulls and working cows with his brother and father in Diana, Texas, a small town, in the northeastern part of the state.
“The raw Texas cowboy lifestyle has a strong impact on the way his music and songs flow. Throw in some Native American roots as well and you have yourself a very nature-influenced soul with a passion for creating and playing music,” Boles’ Facebook pages says.
Boles also is half of the duo Red Feather Tribe that features Boles and Andrew Beavers performing a combination of vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums, tambourine, washboard, Cajón and keys.
Boles was a U.S. Marine and is a former professional bull rider. He studied agriculture at Texas State University, but now music is his true love.
“Caleb’s gypsy/ranching/native/drifter-type life experiences reflect through his lyrics in the songs he writes. All true, raw, passionate story tellin’ feel good grooves,” his Facebook page says.
