by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2017

Country Music's dynamic new sister duo release a re-make of the Mel Tillis classic Heart Over Mind featuring country hit-maker Pam Tillis. Illuminated by a traditional ensemble with steel guitar, twin fiddles and three part harmonies, the song leaves country taping their feet. Heart Over Mind is a preview to Presley & Taylor's forthcoming album which has recently been completed and is scheduled for release. To see The Making of Heart Over Mind: youtu.be/fcfPDbH3ehU About Presley & Taylor Raised in a small farm town in Connecticut, sisters Presley & Taylor spent most of their time alongside their family of talented musicians. Listening to country music greats and world-class trendsetters such as, Tammy Wynette, Tanya Tucker, Randy Travis and Alan Jackson, the girls grew a deep appreciation for Country Music. Described as 'the real deal' and 'absolutely brilliant' by radio execs, the 'neo-traditional' Presley & Taylor embrace the sound of stone cold country music traditions with absolute vocals and impeccable harmonies. Presley & Taylor have shared the stage with award-winning entertainers and hit-makers such as Martina McBride, Ashton Shepard, Bucky Covington, Janie Fricke, Sarah Darling, Jamie O'Neal, The Willis Clan, Buddy Jewell and Restless Heart. They have become regular performers at Tootsies Orchid Lounge, The Nashville Palace, the Hard Rock Café, Margaritaville and Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Music City- Nashville, TN.

BWW Review: Take Your Wash to the Hudson and the HONKY TONK LAUNDRY BWW Review: Take Your Wash to the Hudson and the HONKY TONK LAUNDRY
by Don Grigware - Aug 14, 2017

Remember The Marvelous Wonderettes and Life Could Be a Dream? Creator Roger Bean had two tremendous musical hits in these shows. The Marvelous Wonderettes featured four FBF, and Life... four guy pals. They both focused on living your dream to the fullest, and featured young teens aspiring to the max.

On the shelf since about 2005, Honky Tonk Laundry is Bean's two character musical a la Always Patsy Cline, where he took pop country music and let two ladies have their way with it. They become best friends in the process, compared to Thelma and Louise. Currently onstage at the Hudson in Hollywood, Honky Tonk Laundry is a big audience winner due to its dynamic stars Bets Malone and Misty Cotton, who sing and act the bejesus out of it. Some might call it overkill with anyone else, but these two uber talents keep the audience begging for more. In Roger Bean musicals, the plot is slight and overshadowed by the fun musical numbers and silly dia (more...)
