Three Great Rock Bands in Concert - Empty County Band 4/30 in West Hollywood, Jesse and the Hogg Brothers April 30 Jamaica Plain Boston
By Judy Dessanti, | Apr 29, 2019 11:50 pm ET | Updated Apr 30, 2019 12:55 am ET

A LOT of Rock & Roll this week and Empty County Band led by Steve Kuchinsky land in West Hollywood on Tuesday night at the venerable Rainbow Bar & Grill where Lemmy of Motorhead would stop by our table way back in the day...way way back in the 1980s... You can find the club 9015 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, of course https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Bar_and_Grill

The band has released two powerful new songs, and they've really outdone themselves - "Skeptical" and "Until the End" - getting played on Radio Wigwam and Only Rock Radio, WMWM Salem 91.7, ActivateMedia on the Talking Hendrix program among other stations. Only Rock Radio is also playing the band's self-titled theme song, "Empty County"

Check out their Twitter https://twitter.com/EmptyCountyBand

In Boston, Jesse and the Hogg Brothers tear up Jamaica Plain's The Midway Cafe for their record release party. They got into a heapin' helpin' lots of trouble with the release of "Wife Swapping Party" - Tipper Gore, who in 1985 co-founded the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), which advocated for labeling of record covers of releases featuring profane language, especially in the heavy metal, punk and hip hop genres, or someone who looked like her (most likely a lookalike) was out protesting one of the shows...by herself. The Tipper clone called the cops on the band for playing "Wife Swapping Party" and one of the bandmates made an, ahem, inappropriate gesture.

The band has BANNED Tipper's clone, so she's Banned in Boston, so you won't have any problems at the Midway, just go and enjoy the show

Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
I was raised in a musical family and basically we all learned to play from Pappy Hogg when we would do music as a family activity. Now this band allows a family reunion of such at every performance. Jesse plays with different family members every show.

Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
It just happened, we just did a live shoot and studio acting for our part in the upcoming film ATTACK OF THE KILLER CHICKENS look for it. It puts us in a real different perspective.

What has been the high point of your music path?
All the pretty women that follow us, come to our shows and all the men they attract to our performances. But to be specific the people we meet as we tour from fans to promoters and media. Making friends and building relationships.

So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
The best songs are based in truth or real life experiences and almost every song we have written is exactly that.

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
The whole pay to play that the industry denies the existence of. It is real, always has existed, and it makes getting airplay, shows and press coverage more challenging. Can't let that stop you.

If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Hank Williams II AKA Hank3 as his band and music we are fans of, but we love meting and playing with lots of bands we are now friends with like Sunshine Riot, PUNX, and WMFO to name a few!

What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
We usually practice before we tour with which members will be on it. Everyone keeps up using the internet and always have knowledge of any new material.

Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
Ballad Of Brack Cornett it was a tough one because there was very little documentation on this TX train Robber. Wanted to write a song about someone like that but Sam Bass is most famous TX Train Bandit with hundreds of songs so we wanted to be different. Now the guy has a wikipedia page and maybe its because of our song!

What's coming up in the future?
We have a Live CD and a new EP coming out soon. We also are recording a new EP in Spanish in 2019 and will be scheduling a Spring tour CD release shows , upcoming movie appearance and hopefully a lot more!

Tell us where fans can access your music?
Youtube, Amazon
and the usual places for streaming and downloads

Jesse and the Hogg Brothers with Hemway, Zeke Duckworthy
a WEMF radio night.

"Biker Ann drinking Jack and mixing it with wine" opened up Sally O'Brien's show on Saturday night July 21, 2018. The band decorated in red light featured two guitar, bass, drums with Kitty and Jesse handling the vocals. "Hogg Tail Twist," the new single, followed "Biker Ann" with the traffic in the background as the band plays against the window, the sound more subdued than shows at The Middle East and McGann's. Sally O'Brien's stage is interesting, not as high as the Midway Cafe or McGann's, and the show felt more like it was "unplugged" than the louder Midway and Middle East shows.

"Cream Gravy" for your chicken fried steak must have been consumed by one audience member as he was pogo-stick dancing throughout the set, especially on this song where the tagline is "OK, Hoggs, pour on the gravy" leading to a lovely slide guitar from Joe Bob Hogg. At 13:18 Jesse laments about losing his job and going fishing in a song steeped in hedonism, getting a real good buzz and getting drunk!

Sixteen minutes in Jesse introduces guitarist Kash Hogg, Doc Hogg on the bass, from Biloxi, MS it's Joe Joe Hogg on the drums, Jesse's fourth wife Kitty on vocals and dance, and Joe Bob Hogg who just got out on work release from MCI.

The imagery is very good as the band tears into a low-key "White Trash Meth Lab," the First Family of Cowpunk doing what they do best, tongue-in-cheek comedy (well, sometimes it is more like in your face comedy,) and entertaining asides and dance moves, all fun and a welcome different flavor for rock club audiences. - BlogSpot

The most exciting original Country Rock Band in the Nation. The First Family of Texas CowPunk.

Led by Jesse Braintree the ringmaster of this amazing Texas variety
show, the Hogg family is a different kind of country.

An entertaining night that is both exquisitely played music and can't-take-your-eyes-off-'em showmanship.

Texas, Indiana, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Ohio are the current home states of this creative ensemble, old-style country and western burlesque, if you will.

Jesse & The Hogg Brothers was originally formed in north Texas
and is currently based out of Cambridge MA. But make no mistake about it this is a Texas band and loaded with Texas pride. Celebrating an authentic style of modern country music, that is deeply rooted in the traditions of Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Hank Williams along with that Hogg family sense of humor truly provides fans a unique live experience they won't soon forget. You never know besides Jesse who will be there but can always expect a great show. - The Malden Patch

Rocktober Magazine:
“If this was just a band making white trash jokes and wearing Billy Bob teeth and using fake twangs this might suck. But the beauty of the Hoggs ( who are not above white trash jokes, Billy Bob teeth and fake twangs) is that they are also making super earnest country music, old time stuff, including CB trucking songs, odes to America, and Christmas songs on both albums. If you can't get enough of the crude Southerner comedy (and a zillion Larry The Cable Guy fans can't be wrong) meets 1968 Opry music then get both CD's. Other curious folks get the second CD, as it includes some improved versions of the "hits" from the first one.” - Flamin' Waymon Timbsdayle

Various Magazines/Newspapers

https://jesseandthehoggbrothers.com/press-reviews-and-interviews

Vermont Journal
Jesse and his cousins have been playing all over the states with a hilariously entertaining show that showcases original tracks from their first two albums/CD’s expertly mixed with classic covers from country’s greatest legends all with a unique Hogg Brothers southern sense of humor.
Boston Globe
These Texas transplants (no, They're not from Hazard County; those are different Hoggs) say they play the country music they watched on Hee Haw when they were growing up, by which they mean the sweet spot of honky-tonk practiced by the likes of Buck Owens, George Jones and Merle Haggard.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette:
“Everything you really need to know about Jesse & the Hogg Brothers can be found in songs such as "White Trash Meth Lab" and "Are You Available for Datin'." This is a band with a wicked sense of humor and absolutely no fear. More importantly, this is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass and Southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence and a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny. “ - Victor D Infante - Number One Music

JESSE & THE HOGG BROTHERS are a sprawling collective made up of Jesse Braintree (vocals), accompanied by Stevie Joe Hogg (electric guitar), Lisa Mari Hogg (vocals), Kenny Hogg (acoustic guitar/vocals), Kash Hogg (guitar), Greasy Hogg (bass/drums), Kitty Hogg (cowbell/vocals), Pappy Hogg (bass/guitars/vocals) and Joe Joe Hogg (drums). Originally from the ‘Lone Star State’ they are now working out of Boston. They play good honest country music. Key influences for them include Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, the Punknecks, Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams – and we really can’t argue with that.

Medford's Jesse and the Hogg Brothers at Malden Access TV Dec 17, 2016
Release The Sounds Cable TV Program hosts Medford's Jesse and the Hogg Brothers

By Joe Viglione

Liz Taegel hosts and co-produces Release the Sounds, a program developed at MATV - Malden Access Television. On Saturday, December 17th, at 10 AM during a blizzard, the intrepid crew consisting of co-producer and director Andy Choy, audio wizard David Barker and the camera folk which featured Katie Grace and Julio Magalhaes taped one of the most professional - and humorous - ensembles in New England, Medford's own Jesse & The Hogg Brothers.

With beautiful purple lighting, and the colorful wardrobe essential to the look of the Country rock / Cowpunk presented by the Hogg Brothers, the B & B label recording artist delivered a dozen tunes with titles such as “White Trash Meth Lab,” “Cashville,” “Fake It,” (She’s Done Gone to the) Gittin Place,” and a song with airplay on local radio stations WMWM Salem, WEMF Cambridge and Somerville’s Boston Free Radio “Biker Ann.” Biker Ann “drinks more than a man,” which is, of course, all you need to know about her comings and goings. The group featured Jesse Braintree and Kitty Hogg on vocals, Ray Ray Hogg on guitar and vocals, Kash Hogg and Steve Joe Hogg. The drummer got caught in the storm and couldn’t make it, showing the versatility of this national act which plays venues from Texas to Las Vegas and everything in between. Their schedule touring the country is quite hectic – which you can find on Reverb Nation:

https://www.reverbnation.com/ jessethehoggbrothers

The schedule is quite amazing, actually, with the ensemble in Salisbury Beach on Saturday January 14 at The Carousel Lounge, Indianapolis Indiana on Jan 19th at the Melody Inn Tavern, Friday the 20th in St Louis at The Way Out Club, Saturday January 21 at The Haunt in St. Louis, Missouri, Friday February 10th at the Third Street Dive in Louisville Kentucky, Saturday February 11th in Newport Kentucky at The Southgate House Revival and back to Boston Thursday February 23 at Hennessy’s Hooley House before heading to Las Vegas Nevada on March 18th and Manhattan – yes, New York, New York April 15 at the Shrine World Music Venue and a return engagement at Otto’s Shrunken Head on Sunday, April 16.

More dates are scheduled in between those shows, of course. Quite an achievement for a band based in this region busy working on new vinyl album releases for the legendary Black and Blue record label.

When guitarist Ray Ray Hogg had to exit MATV Stevie Joe, Kash, Kitty and Jesse carried on with “Love Buckets,” “Hogg Tail Twist,” “Cashville,” the Johnny Cash classic “Folsom Prison Blues,” and more. Then the interview with Liz Taegel concluded a productive Saturday morning / early afternoon in Malden, Massachusetts.

The locally produced program - Release the Sounds - was on hiatus and is back. They tape about a show a month with Positive Negative Man set for February 2017, Blue Manic, Elsewhere and other regional acts scheduled for future interviews, group performance and airplay. The show airs at 8 PM on Comcast channel 3 and Verizon 28. Nine shows have been completed thus far

Jesse & The Hogg Brothers
02-21-2015 @ Double Down Saloon
Las Vegas, Nevada
Photos & Review: Jeff Longo

Jesse and the Hogg Brothers made a rare west coast appearance last week appearing at the infamous The Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas. The Hogg Brothers put a raucous hilarious set they got the local crowd plenty warmed up for an evening of good old punk rock with Anti-Social – Cosmic Beasts – Agent 86. This is my first time seeing the Hogg’s as they don’t get out west very often and I have to say they put on a fun evening of tongue in cheek honky-tonk country that brought the crowd to the dance floor.

In the hour long set front man Jesse Braintree and side kick vocalist Lisa Mari Hogg keep the crowd entertained between cuts from their two releases: “White Trash Meth Lab” and “Working For Yankee Money” on punk label Black & Blue Records. The band was tight & and hit on all cylinders with Stevie Joe Hogg & Buzz Hogg on guitars while Pappy Hogg (Bass) & JoJo Hogg (drums) held the back-line. The Double Down is a Vegas institution, think the west coast “CBGB”, covered in stickers floor to ceiling, cheap booze (Ass Juice and Bacon Martinis), & full of punk attitude and the Hoggs rocked it as well as any punk outfit that has graced its beer soaked stage. I highly recommend you check this out. Highlights: the entire show including a kick-ass cover of Hank III “Pills I Took” & their new track “Party in My Pants” which is getting national radio play on Top 40 stations across the country.

Stubble caught up with Black&Blue Records‘ progressive country band Jesse & the Hogg Brothers at Hogg HQ as they regroup for the second leg of their mid west tour that featured a stop at the Redneck Olympics, yes this exists. Jesse Braintree and family are keeping old school, real country alive; think CB trucking songs, odes to America, mud wrestling, etc.; if you can’t get enough of the crude Southerner comedy meets 1968 Grand Ole Opry country music then check them out.

Stubble: How about we start with some introductions.
Jesse Braintree: My Name is Jesse Braintree with me is my cousin Stevie Joe Hogg he plays banjo and guitar we got my cousin Buford Hogg Slide guitar, and over drinking beer at 10:30 in the morning, as usual, is my long standing cousin Buzz Hogg (bass, guitar, vocals).

Stubble: How did you guys get started?
Jesse Braintree: Well were all related, so actually what happened my dad died when I was young. He was in the military. He ended up being AWOL, we really don’t know what happened to him. So I ended up growing with my cousin buzz and my cousin Neil. Their father Pappy, he kinda raised us, he taught us how to play, so we’ve been playing music ever since. As every generation of Hoggs come up like the youngsters here they’ve joined us. Its one big family act. Best way to say it.

Stubble: Being a country band do you have any musical influences you want to talk about?
Jesse Braintree: Liquor for Buzz but, I don’t know, we grew up listing to Buck Owens and other people on Hee Haw and all the artists there whether your talking Hank Williams Jr, Roy Clarke, Johnny Cash, George Jones they’re all big, big influences on us. We just learned to love traditional, Ole Opry style country music and we try to add that element to our music.

Stubble: What do you think of today’s country music?
Jesse Braintree: For the most part I don’t. Its just pop music with a twang. I like Hank III and there’s plenty of people playing good country music in fact some artists play a little bit of both., but for what’s on the radio, I would say no I don’t listen to country radio. Its not what I like.

Stubble: Is there genre that you like besides country?
Jesse Braintree: Sure, we’re on a punk rock or metal label, we’re open to any kinda music. In fact whats funny one of our songs Biker Ann, a film maker approached us about a year ago and asked us if we’d be interested to turn that song into a movie. So that’s the plan right now we don’t know if its really gonna happen but supposedly we’re writing a script based on the song. The guy who owns the record label is writing a script along that so I have no idea if its going to have anything to do with the true story, bu we’re hoping to film that some time in 2013 and I’m real excited about that.

Stubble: You don’t have accents.
Jesse Braintree: I’m gonna answer this the only way I can. We’re from Texas, but we didn’t spend our whole lives in Texas. So I grew up mostly up here…We work for Yankee money, you saw our CD it’s called ‘Working for Yankee Money’ and we’ve been Working for Yankee for a long time. As much as we’re in Texas more than anywhere else, we’re up here too. So I guess I don’t sound as Texan as someone else but I’m a Texan and very proud of it. Normally when people say that to me I usually get pretty upset, especially when I am in Texas and some Texan says I’m not from Texas I don’t think that’s very respectful.

Jesse & The Hogg Brothers Interview

Grab stompin', crazy trailer redneck trash fun for your buns! Ya like the nitty gritty of the country silly dirt band? Here's one I discovered over the interwebs highway of myspace.com. I listened to a bit o "White Trash Meth Lab" and had me a chuckle. Also with the song for the movie "Biker Ann" which I gotta see and I also gotta see them! They're on tour right now and shall be in my neck-o-the woods in January! Grabs! Anyways here's some questions I asked and they answered with ease.

What kind-of ass do you like to grab?

Well, it varies with each of us to some extent. Bobby likes fat chicks and loves to grab big asses they have, Neil, Hirohito, Kenny and myself like the young girls, butt never can resist hot ass. Buzz and Junior usually pick their own.

Have you ever played in a pig pen?

Of course we have!

What did you play?

Grab-ass is our favorite game. Our sisters and cousins usually end up sore and covered in mud, some of the pigs do too.

What male animals have you watched buttfuck?

Dogs, cats and one time Bobby walked into a trailer and found somebody and Billy Ray goin' at it They both denied it and said Bobby made it up, but I believe Bobby.

What's your favorite toilet paper?

The kind that comes on a roll. We usually use single sheets from the eatin' place Buzz use to work at. We are getting' low on those. Buzz aint worked in 2 years.

Have you ever heard a ghost fart?

There are lots of spirits in my house Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker and Old Grand Dad to name a few. And Old Grand Dad is an old fart and he never shuts up neither.

Besides your own home, where is your favorite toilet?

Actually, we love going to hotels especially fancy ones and doing our bizness thar. I can't say our homes have very good ones. We use outhouses at our trailer park except Neil - his trailer is the best!

Have any silly fart stories?

Junior Hogg and Hirohito Hogg are really big on farting. When we stayed in a hotel in Austin Kenny Hogg was sleeping on the floor of the room they was in and he came a banging on my door begging to sleep on the floor in my room. He tried Nell's room but he wouldn't let Kenny in cause he was with his sister Becky Sue Yeeee haw! So I let him stay on the floor in my room!

Our practice space it always smells like rotten ass from them 2, We just wrote a song for our next CD that we played at Headhunters, well part of it, we just did the chorus, it was called"Wait a Minute I Just Farted" I think ya'all would like it!

What would you like the world to know about you?

I'll be brief. Butt please check-us out and become a fan or friend us on line. We have 2 CDs out now "White Trash Meth Lab" and "Working for Yankee Money" you can buy them at amazon.com or CD Baby and lots of other places.

Bio

The most exciting original Bluegrass, Country, Punk Rock Band in the Nation. From Boston, MA- The First Family of Texas CowPunk. Jesse & The Hogg Brothers was formed in North Texas and is currently based out of Cambridge MA. But make no mistake about it this is a Texas band and loaded with Texas pride. Celebrating an authentic style of modern country music, that is deeply rooted in the traditions of Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Hank Williams along with the Hogg family sense of humor truly provides fans a unique live experience they wont soon forget.

Led by Jesse Braintree the ringmaster of this amazing variety show, the Hogg family is a different kind of country. Think the Beverly Hillbillies with internet access. Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show on steroids.  The Hee Haw TV program at maximum warp.  

The entire family band performance captivates and has this hillbilly troupe touring across the USA 

With experience performing in festivals like The Woodstock Fair, Roxy Music Festival, Newburyport Yankee Homecoming, Monarch Butterfly Festival, The Ancients And Horrible Parade, and many more events as well as nightclubs and dive bars. They can entertain any size room with as small as a trio to as large as 8-10 performers.

Boston Globe

These Texas transplants (no, They're not from Hazard County; those are different Hoggs) say they play the country music they watched on Hee Haw when they were growing up, by which they mean the sweet spot of honky-tonk practiced by the likes of Buck Owens, George Jones and Merle Haggard.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette:

“Everything you really need to know about Jesse & the Hogg Brothers can be found in songs such as "White Trash Meth Lab" and "Are You Available for Datin'." This is a band with a wicked sense of humor and absolutely no fear. More importantly, this is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass and Southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence and a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny. “ - Victor D Infante

Rocktober Magazine:

“If this was just a band making white trash jokes and wearing Billy Bob teeth and using fake twangs this might suck. But the beauty of the Hoggs ( who are not above white trash jokes, Billy Bob teeth and fake twangs) is that they are also making super earnest country music, old time stuff, including CB trucking songs, odes to America, and Christmas songs on both albums. If you can't get enough of the crude Southerner comedy (and a zillion Larry The Cable Guy fans can't be wrong) meets 1968 Opry music then get both CD's. Other curious folks get the second CD, as it includes some improved versions of the "hits" from the first one.” - Flamin' Waymon Timbsdayle

The Bridge Paper

"House Husband" is what every woman really wants, a man to do all the housework, cooking and shopping and still put out! People say country music is about losing your job, your love, your dog but these guys are just plain down to earth funny and are going straight to my iPod! - Laurie Johnson - The Bridge Paper

"Non-Stop Thrills in this irreverent country music debut. The CD contains more talent than is implied by the song titles. Highly recommended if you enjoy laughing your ass off!" CC - Stubble Musiczine
