 The Red Hot hayseed had a red hot vintage classic country sound, in part to ’40s sounding background vocalists Dayna Lyn Moritz and the multi-talented Sydney  Zadravec who also added extra guitar while frontman Tyler Allen played pedal steel guitar for a couple songs.


Sweet clarinet playing from Cedric Blary added to the band’s vintage western swing sound.


Drummer Eric Allen and Keith Rodger held down the bottom end on upright bass.


 They played familiar  western swing music and a Patsy Cline deep cut, but also added a few  songs from their new EP including “ Ain’t No Cowpoke.”


“ I Don’t Want a Second Hand Romance was a highlight as was an upbeat cover of Hank Williams’  “ Rolypoly.”
