HUNDRED ACRES has appeared on several radio and TV shows including WDVX’s “Blue Plate Special”, Knox ivi’s “11 O’Clock Rock, WJHL TV11 in Johnson City and WCYB TV5 in Bristol and celebrated its 50th show at 2012′s Racks by the Tracks Festival in front of thousands of people. Along with Racks by the Tracks, the band was featured at Kingsport’s Twilight Alive Series, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and Kingsport Oktoberfest! ”It’s been a wild ride” says Lane, “but I wouldn’t change a thing!”Their freshman record, “Where the Buffalo Roam” featured the session work of Grammy-Award winning guitarist Tim Stafford of Blue Highway and the unbelievable fiddle-playing of Kevin Jackson, from Wolf Creek both great friends of the band. The lineup of HUNDRED ACRES includes producer and lead-guitarist Quentin Horton, Matthew Oakes on mandolin, local legendary songwriter JP Parsons on bass, Brian Seiler on drums and Jeff Lane fronting the band and on guitar. HUNDRED ACRES also has a feature member, local legend Randy Broyles who makes “special deliveries” to the “STRaNGe HeRD”, friends and followers of the band. It would be fair to say that this show is one of the best-kept secrets in the Bristol region. HUNDRED ACRES sophomore album was released on Jeff’s 41st birthday (now a tradition to release a new record every year on September 8th) and showcased the old time raw-energy that the band had found from it’s first season playing live shows and featuring 11 tracks (plus a hidden track – you find it), including crowd favorites like “Thunderchicken”, “Gotta’ Get My Smokin’ Done (Before She Gets Home)”, “Homegrown” and “Somebody Bring Me a Forty”. The band has crossed over many bridges in the first year but continues to grow, both in music and spirit, and in the delivery of the shows. You don’t want to miss these boys in 2013, as they are already working on record #3, and it’s off the hook! web design / management by Jeff Lane SOLUTIONS
