The Panhandlers rocked the Wagner Noël

The West Texas band consisting of Josh Abbott, John Baumann, William Clark Green and Cleto Cordero brought their sounds to a Midland crowd. “The sound is a sonic landscape right out of a hot afternoon in Lubbock, Texas,” said Baumann in a press release from the band’s website. Cordero also referred to the band’s sounds are “storytelling music”.

“The songs are vignettes of West Texas life, but when you put them together, they make a mosaic,” he said in a press release.  The band says their album is pure West Texas and “laced with pedal steel, fiddle, banjo, dobro, guitar and percussion.”
