Judge Mike & the Lawless - CD Release at the Monday Club

  • The Monday Club 1815 Monterey St San Luis Obispo, CA, 93401 United States (map)

The jury is in and the verdict is clear: JUDGE MIKE & THE LAWLESS are doing time in concert – guilty of nothing but bringing back the kind of country that you grew up with, the kind of country your daddy used to listen to, and the kind of Americana/Country music that is booming again all across the land.

Judge Mike Cummins (Superior Court of California, retired) is busting out of his legal chains and making this motion: Join Judge Mike & The Lawless in celebration of their new CD release, Breaking Out.

The $27.50 general admission price will include a copy of the new CD.  Doors open at 2:30 PM; the concert begins at 3 PM; CD signing and meet & greet to follow.

“I’ve put down my gavel, hung up my robe and am sporting a big hat and boots with a guitar strapped across my chest,” laughs the singing judge. “One of the biggest lessons I’m learning is that it is never too late to follow your heart and build your dream. ”

And Judge Mike’s life now is music. Johnny Cash’s. Merle Haggard’s. Willie Nelson’s. Songs by Hank Williams and Kris Kristofferson, plus a good dose of Mike’s own original brand of music. Fans who come to the Breaking Out celebration can look forward to songs like ‘Folsom Prison Blues,' ‘Amarillo by Morning,’ and ‘Me & Bobby McGee,’ just to name a few.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Judge Mike will share The Monday Club stage with his seven-member Lawless gang:  Kenny Blackwell  (guitar, mandolin); Wally Barnick (bass, vocals); Art  Dougall  (drums); Corine Manroe  (guitar, bass, vocals); Alex Kizanis (keyboards); Bob Hamilton  (pedal steel), and Julie Beaver (fiddle, vocals).

Advance phone orders: 805/545-0777 or purchase in person at Boo Boo Records, 978 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo.
