 They played three huge set, but I only caught the second, which included several sultry, sassy numbers from Ginger St. James’ new CD  “Diesel and Peas” as well as classic country covers.

 She sang with a  beautiful  twang, and oozed good natured attitude and sass.

 Snowheel Slim played   plenty of twanging Telecaster licks and thumped out a rhythm on a bass drum and snare drum set at his feet.
 She at times channelled Wanda Jackson at times and outlaw country queen Elizabeth Cook at other times.

 She had a pair of couples two stepping to the more upbeat country songs.

“ Please Mr. Driver, one of the more bluesy songs off her new CD was a highlight as was a cover of “Little Red  Wagon,” popularized by Miranda Lambert. she broke up a couple of the more sexy, sassy numbers “Boom Boom Room”  and “ Zipper” with an Ernest Tubbs cover of “ Thanks A Lot.”

 She went really old school country by request and showed off some prodigious yodelling chops on  “I Want to be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart.”
