The Sickstring Outlaws are a rugged, outlaw country band based in the San Diego area. “We have an aggressive sound,” says the band, “with story-telling vocals about real life, hard-working men, the day-to-day struggle with substance abuse, and some of our most favorite honky-tonk heroes...we don’t try to sugar-coat anything.”
Their album Johnny Drank Jack was nominated Best Local Recording at the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. Their second full-length album, Electric Moonshine, was released in Autumn 2014.
The band has had the good fortune, through hard work, to open for the likes of David Allan Coe, The Marshall Tucker Band and Merle Jagger, as-well-as many local acts; such as the popular tribute band Cash'd Out, Married by Elvis, Three Bad Jacks, and many more. They have performed at many venues, such as Brick by Brick, Adams Ave. Street Fair, San Diego Fair, Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego Sports Arena and The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, The Ramona Mainstage (sold out show w/ David Allan Coe), Winstons, Dream Street Live, and Gallagher's to name just a few. The Sickstring Outlaws have taken the hard road by playing original songs, staying true to what they believe in and working hard to keep outlaw country music alive. By sheer determination, they are starting to gain a large and strong fan base everywhere they play. If you happen to catch their live show... you will not be disappointed.
