Kacey Jones & Becky Hobbs - Noise Bar

International country stars Kacey Jones and Becky Hobbs headline the Nu Country TV concert from the Noise Bar, Brunswick, this Saturday - July 19 - at 8.30 p m on C 31.

The duo won wide acclaim for the exclusive concert on Friday February 1 during their first Australian tour that began on the famous Tamworth Train.

Our Series #10 editor Sean Tierney and Timothy Cole filmed the two stars after their major concerts in Tamworth and Sydney.

Jones and Hobbs were touring to promote their rich country catalogues dating back to the eighties on a show that is repeated Thursday - 9.30 am - and Saturday 4.30 am.

Californian born Kacey fronted Ethel & The Shameless Hussies when they cut debut disc Born To Burn in 1988.

She proved depth of her talent by showcased hilarious songs from her comedy albums and her evocative Mickey Newbury tribute disc, out here this month.

Fellow Californian born Mid Pacific Bob Olson hosts this week's show for Jones who also performed on Derek Guille's popular nocturnal show on 774-AM on the ABC.

Comedienne Jones also landed three songs in Olivia Newton-John movie Sordid Lives that has now inspired a sit-com on U.S. cable television.

Kacey and Becky also reached way back into their musical history for a memorable performance on David Heard's eclectic Acid Country show on PBS-FM.

Hobbs, born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, turned 58 in Tamworth, and impressed with a vast variety of songs from Best Of The Beckaroo Part 1 and her rich back catalogue.

Beckaroo features songs from her albums from 1988-2001 - All Keyed Up, The Boots I Came To Town In, From Oklahoma With Love, Swedish Coffee & American Sugar and Hottest Ex In Texas.
