Roger Hoover and the Whiskeyhounds 

Jukebox Manifesto (www.RogerHoover.com)

172234.0.jpeg
Jukebox Manifesto bleeds tried-and-true roots-rock tropes, but it's no recycled tribute. Leaning on a B3 organ, Justin Gorski fills the songs with blues, and Roger Hoover's rough, soul-weary tenor completes the old-time country crossover. "Inside His Devil Grin" barrels forth over a locomotive beat as Hoover bemoans soldier boys who come home in boxes. "Gewgaw Girl," in contrast, quakes like something recorded after a long night of drinking rotgut with Tom Waits. And Waits would no doubt find good company in the Canton troubadour.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
