Randy Casey has put together a new group, Randy Casey & the DeTractors, who start a residency at Lee's Liquor Lounge on Wednesdays beginning October 5.
Casey describes the group as "roots twang," and says they strive to redefine country rock. They will play Casey's original material as well as select classics.
Casey also hopes to encourage other area performers to make cameo appearances.
