Brownsville Station™ was formed in the late Sixties by members Michael Lutz, Cub Koda, Tony Driggins, later adding Henry “H-Bomb” Weck to their talented roster. In their early days, the band toured with the likes of John Mayall and Alice Cooper, eventually working their way up to headlining gigs at rock music festivals and Madison Square Garden. Today, the group has added three new players, Andy Patalan, Greg Beyer and Billy Craig, and has recorded a project of really rockin' new songs currently available on iTunes, Still Smokin’. They’re ready to unleash a revamped adrenaline-fueled show for 2013. “It’s been 30+ years since we’ve been out there, but it’s become obvious to us over the years that Brownsville Station™ might be more popular now than ever before,” says Lutz.

From Jimmy Fox, drummer James Gang:
HOLY CRAP!! I LOVE IT!!!!! Yesterday, I drove to Toledo and back and got to listen to the record. Henry, it's terrific-in all ways. I love the playing, I love the singing and especially the lyrics, I love the recording...I love it all!! You guys did a great job and you should be very proud of it. I especially liked the second track, with all the artist's name-checks...very cool.
