Best Country Band (Traditional) St. Louis 2007 - The Well Hungarians

Yeah, it's a funny band name. Hysterical. At this point in their career, it's more than likely that the Well Hungarians have succeeded in spite of their moniker than because of it. The five-piece plays straight-ahead, radio-friendly country music with three-part vocal harmonies. Jim Ed Hodges keeps things honest with his fiddle, adding a lilting sweetness or a sawing urgency to the band's guitar-led sound. At their weekly Wednesday-night gig at south county's House of Rock (South Lindbergh Boulevard and Baptist Church Road [in Ronnie's Plaza], South St. Louis County; www.stlhouseofrock.com or 314-842-2550), the Hungarians play a mix of originals and country-rock favorites from the likes of America and Tom Petty. Regardless of the tune, the band is able to fill the dance floor with slow-dancers, two-steppers and booty-shakers — sometimes all at once.
