The Clumsy Lovers

Whitesburg, Kentucky

The Summit City Lounge is an up and coming music venue in a beautiful little mountain town down the road from Hazard, Kentucky. No. Bo and Luke Duke were from Hazard, Georgia. I checked into it. I wouldn’t want you to read something inaccurate on the internet. They’ve only been open about a year but it’s coming along nicely. More and more traveling bands are coming through thanks to word of mouth, lots of support from the community radio station, a great sound guy and supportive ownership. It’s a beautiful open plan brick building with a tin ornamental interior roof built in 1925. Kind of like a spruced up Silver Dollar in Butte Montana if you’ve ever been there. Being our first time through on a Tuesday night the crowd was predictably small but wonderfully enthusiastic and helped us out by snapping up our merchandise. I kind of had the feeling that momentum would build quickly due to word of mouth if we were able to get back to play more than once a year. But we live in Vancouver. The venue is in Kentucky. Enough said. As we had to leave early the next morning I passed up the opportunity to go listen to vinyl records with a few friendly locals and headed upstairs to the band house to join the rest of the band in dreamland. Except for Tyler and Jason who stayed up most of the night on the internet…

I play guitar and sing with a band called the Clumsy Lovers. We’ve traveled a lot here and there over the last 20 years.
