COUNTRY FRIED ROCK is what they're calling it.
Dean Seltzer and the Redneck Mothers walk the line between Texas country and rock with a high energy live show that leaves the crowds in Austin screaming for more at the end of the night. Dean has shared the stage with the likes of Reckless Kelly, Pat Green, Gary P. Nunn, Robert Earl Keen, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Their debut album shows both the classic rock and Texas country influences that have shaped the band.
Two things stand out when speaking of Dean and the Mothers: First of all, the music on the album speaks for itself. (Pick a song - there's not a weak one on it!) Secondly, this band is fun to watch. Their stage energy and comic crowd interaction make this band impossible to pull away from. Whether its Dean's fire-breathing routine, Ricky's Grammy award winning fiddlin, or Shelli Coe (yes - David Allan Coe's daughter) coming on stage to sit in for a song or two, you'll find a reason to see this band again.
