Biography

Sean Reefer formed the Resin Valley Boys with the goal of bringing the sounds of classic country and western swing music back to a world that had forgotten how to two-step. Sean and the Boys quickly built a reputation as the swinginest band in Houston and in Texas, cementing that reputation with the release of their first full length album, "Texas Hill Country," in 2003. Their first nominations for Best C&W Act and Best New Act from the Houston Press Music Awards soon followed. Since then, Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys have appeared onstage with such Texas legends as Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, and Asleep at the Wheel, and national acts like David Allen Coe, Deke Dickerson, Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men, Scott Biram, Big Sandy and his Flyrite Boys, and Junior Brown.

In 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Sean and the Boys received nominations for Best C&W Act from the Houston Press Music Awards, winning the prestigious title in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, the boys played a coveted showcase slot at the Americana Music Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2007 and 2008 the band won a AMMA award and two GMMA awards for songs off the Texas Hill Country Album.

Sean has been busy singing all over the great state of Texas ever since, winning new fans in every honky-tonk, dancehall, and lounge he and the Boys play in. Currently, they are in the studio recording material for a forthcoming, brand new full length release. Watch for them soon in your town. And bring your dancin' shoes; they'll wear 'em out for you soon enough.

Set List

The band does sets anywhere from 45 minutes to four hours. For the shorter sets we typically do most of the songs on the "Texas Hill Country" album, with some new songs and covers thrown in. For our longer sets we do the same, but draw on our vast repertoire of country and western swing standards as well. We perform anything from Bob Wills and Hank Williams tunes, to classics by Gene Vincent, Webb Pierce, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams II, Wayne Hancock and Hank Williams III. We encourage requests and usually are able to perform them.

Sean also does a more toned down acoustic show for lounges and small bars, with an upright bass and one or two soloists.
